Tennessee’s Cierra Burdick judged the Lady Vols’ performance at North Carolina on Monday night in terms of how it might play in March. Her verdict: not good enough.

And all of your fan's hope you make that greatness, and play hard, smart basketball for the whole game, each game, of the entire season. Make us proud!

You have to be happy with this win. You've played the # 11 team on their floor, commited 24 turn overs, some unforced, had dreadful foul shooting for some players and still won by 16. It's early and most of the mistakes are correctible. I just look for game to game improvement. This should be a FUN season and get us back to being an elite team. Once again, IMO...

Well Holly have you ever heard of a timeout to get your point across seeing the lead shrinking. Just saying

I like that attitude; I think it is a good sign not to be ever satisfied with a win or a loss. Keep improving. I think the Lady Vols really have something going with Harrison and Russell. If Holly can keep one or the other in the game at all times I think this gives them a big advantage over most teams. They should have a lot of legs left at the end. I love the Ariel Massengale, Andraya Carter combo. I think they both give Tennesse a lot of leadership and stability. I really like Andraya's defense.

Good post; agree with all. Carter was in many ways the player that impressed me the most. Her hustle and defense ought to be contagious. The posts played generally well, but they could all stand to gather themselves and give a good pump fake before going up. They looked like they were just trying to go up off their toes which had them shooting off-balance when a little more patience and power would have given them cinch scores. Glad to see Massengale shooting well and I'm sure Meighan will come around.
