KNOXVILLE — On Monday, News Sentinel Lady Vols beat reporter Dan Fleser joined Sports Page host Vince Ferrara and News Sentinel PrepXtra editor Jesse Smithey to discuss Lady Vols hoops, Sunday's NFL championship games and Peyton Manning.

After discussing some of the more memorable plays from the AFC and NFC championship games Jan. 19, Fleser addressed the Lady Vols "Big Monday" home game against Notre Dame.

"They have to be Tennessee. I mean, whatever their best version is, that team has to be on the floor tonight," Fleser said of the Lady Vols. "And this team has been very confounding in that respect. There can be wide, wide swings within the scope of a few minutes."

Fleser goes on to call Tennessee's Jan. 16 away game at Mississippi State "one of the most schizophrenic games" he's ever seen.

"They have to be really good tonight," he said. "They have to particularly be really good defensively because this Notre Dame team is just an offensive powerhouse."

The Lady Vols will face Notre Dame at Thompson Boling Arena at 7 p.m. (and broadcast on ESPN2).
