The Tennessee women's basketball team was listed in the "others receiving votes" category in the final USA Today/ESPN coaches poll on Wednesday.
The Lady Vols finished 22-11 this season and were ousted from the NCAA tournament by Ball State in the first round.
Volleyball: Former UT standout Amy Morris has been hired as Tulane's top assistant coach and recruiting coordinator.
Morris, who transferred from Penn State, was an outside hitter and libero at UT (2002-05) where she was named SEC Defensive Player of the Year in 2004 and led the Lady Vols to the Final Four in 2005.
"I think I am able to bring a great amount of diverse experience and dedication to the program," Morris said in a press release. "My experience with being a NCAA contender while at Tennessee will help us during tournament time and my intensity will keep us in the hunt every year."
