Did you LSU girls watch the officials give you the game. Will not happen this time. You have a nightmare coming. For sure ms Ballard, going to be stepped on by Carter. GBO!!!!!

Lady Vols will lose this game. They cannot handle rough play. They get intimidated.

Holly needs to recruit another point guard and give Massengale a medical scholarship. She should never be allowed to play again if that little smack in the face has caused her such problems as to miss this many games. That much of a collision is possible any time she drives the lane. Keep her out of sports for her own good.

I think we win because we will be highly motivated. Worried about Reynolds ankle.
Main thing is I'm also worried about AM. You r right that this seems like a long recovery for not a big hit. I wonder if she was shut down until next year if that would help or if she is always going to be susceptible to concussions. Isn't Alexa M from Riverdale a PG? I think Tucker is a shooting guard. Reynolds can play PG but isn't she more of a shooting guard?

It's refreshing to see such a strong interest in the well being of a player. I think Jordan can fill the need you express for a point guard; Coach Holly doesn't have to panic.

Looks like the LVs--or the Vol men, for that matter--aren't the only ones to have issues of cohesion, confidence, and concentration. As has been alluded to above, there were a number of unusual circumstances that allowed LSU to win at TBA, and on paper one would think the LVs have more than enough to win the rematch, except of course for the worrisome lack of depth at PG. Arguably, the three most important players going forward are Carter, Reynolds, and Massengale. When those three are at their best, the LVs are almost as strong in the backcourt as they are in the posts. Since only the first two are likely to play tonight--and we can only hope Reynolds IS ready to play--Carter had better try to stay productive but under control so she can be effective for long stretches. It would be a BIG help if the LVs could tighten up their post defense and defensive rebounding, because it is going to be hard for them to stay in the shooters' faces with the thin backcourt.

I think these next two games are going to be huge, regardless whether South Carolina wins tonight or not. Personally I think they will win tonight because they have their backs to the wall. That should not be the case. Holly needs to get inside this team and motivate them to play their best every game. When someone messes up she needs to call a time out or take them out and get right in their face. All the great coaches that I ever saw would do that. For some players that's the only way they will play great, when they get angry. I think Holly has some players that she needs to make angry.

It appears that Coach Caldwell, in the Lady Vol tradition, has her players commenting to the press about how awful players and people they are. If your players aren't motivated, playing together smoothly, and caring for each other at this time of year, it's too late to change now. Benching all the starters for seven minutes early in the second half of a game you lost after leading by 15 and really needed to win, indicates desperation. I'd rather be where the Lady Vols are. This is yet another indication that the next coach, whenever that might be, should be from outside the 'family'.

Tennessee needs to make a huge statement tonight and Sunday going into the SEC tournament. They need to have a were are still Tennessee attitude and win out . Looking at Mr.Cremes brackets I feel TN has a easy path to the final four if we play with a chip on our shoulder and don't play like its our first time in a tournament. Teams I'm eyeing that are formidable yet beatable are NC st, Maryland and Stanford. I think we can torch these teams if we play our A game with minimum TOs.
