'A little conflict' after game
Tennessee survived a hard-fought women's basketball game at Vanderbilt and an apparent misunderstanding on the Commodores' court afterward.
The Lady Vols gathered at center court, as they do after every game - home or away - for a post-game prayer. The Lady Vols were asked by a Vanderbilt police officer to leave the floor, according to Debby Jennings, UT's associate athletics director for media relations. The officer mistakenly thought the Lady Vols' gathering was disrespecting the team logo, Jennings said.
"There was a little situation after the game ended and I just want to clarify,'' UT coach Pat Summitt said. "Our team always goes to the middle of the court and they have a prayer. So, in case anyone questions what happened out there, we had a little conflict going on."
