    Tennessee Lady Vol News

    I'm not sure what you think the stats are saying that counters what I said about her being afraid to shoot. The starting SG averaged 6.5 ppg over those three years on a low # of shot attempts given what position she played, and shot under 40% from the field. We've all seen enough games where...

    Non-Lady Vol Basketball News 2021-22

    Yup. Based on post-collegiate results, there are about 50 players more deserving than KLS to be on the finalist list...and that doesn't count the ones that made the final roster. And let's be honest...KLS was very good in college, but not the kind of good that translates to great at the next...

    I don't have a huge problem with Bueckers, assuming she maintains or exceeds her current level of play. She was NPOY as a freshman. Having her on the next Olympic squad is no different than Parker or Stewart making the team right after completing an outstanding collegiate career.

    Ace Clement was the other Tennessee player I can think of that dolled herself up on the court...hair, makeup, nails. I remember a story from her playing time where she caught CPS staring at her freshly painted nails. She said, she wanted to look pretty, and CPS said that she didn't care if she...

    They were already doing it even before they got the opportunity to monetize it. DiDi Richards and Chelsea Dungee have spent the last few years showcasing their good looks (face and body) on their IG pages, even if they weren't getting paid. If Brittany Jackson were born 20 years ago and...

    Non-Lady Vol Basketball News 2021-22

    I've dismissed why Katie should have been a finalist, but the same is also true for Stefanie. She's past her prime and a mediocre player at this stage of her career, and there are a lot of younger players (like Hines-Allen) who should have been in the conversation before her.

    I don't think Icon is a sponsor. It sounds like they are basically a matchmaking service for athletes interested in sponsorship deals and companies looking for marketable athletes. I don't have Tik Tok either. Not my thing and I'm certainly not the target audience for such a platform, but I...

    I don't think anything they are doing is putting Fresno State in a compromising position. It's not like the twins are doing porn. They do mostly dance videos while making sure to show off their good looks. They have a couple of videos where they are in their playing gear, but most of them are...

    In the case of the Cavinder twins, they pulled off being the star players on their team AND social media darlings. They might have to give up other things in their lives to maintain their brand and their game, but it depends on how much work they're willing to put in.

    It's always been that way throughout human history. Hell, even in the rest of the animal kingdom.

    Not if the player is hot, fashionable and can dance. She would do juuuuuust fine. There are plenty of starters for top WCBB teams that wouldn't be able to monetize their likeness in any significant way just based on basketball and their looks.

    Barring injury, Collier will consistently be one of the best players in the WNBA. I initially thought she was deserving of a spot on the team, but only because I assumed that Nneka withdrew because of injury. If she was picked over Nneka, then that is total bullsH*t. Napheesa can have her...

    I just looked at some of the Cavinder Twins' Tik Tok videos, and all I have to say is that the basketball picture doesn't do any justice to them. At. All. I can see why they have millions of followers, and it has pretty much nothing to do with them being basketball players. They could be...

    Confirmed: Samantha Williams to Tennessee

    She's certainly putting in the time and getting the recruits to come on campus... more than we heard about since CKH was hired. I know the previous staff had a lot of offers out to top players, but it was probably a weird year with campus visit limitations due to COVID. In any event, Samantha...

    It's probably more common than you think. There are tons of star HS players that can only score when they use their superior athleticism to get all the way to the basket, and made a living out of that prior to college and then realize it's a different story at the next level and get cold feet...

    Andraya Carter didn't want to shoot, and it wasn't because of Holly. She looked like she was literally afraid to shoot the basketball.

    2023 Recruiting

    Key priorities are an athletic big that can protect the point and finish inside, a scoring wing with an outside shot, and an elite PG (if they can't land one in '22). Truthfully, I don't think there will be a single position in 2023 where there won't be an opportunity to upgrade the talent...

    What team do you like to watch besides the Lady Vols

    But...what happens if two of them are playing each other? Meteor strike?

    What team do you like to watch besides the Lady Vols

    I'll watch most of the Tennessee games if I'm free, but also like to watch high profile matchups between other top teams. I was also a big fan of Vic when he was coaching MSST, and started watching more Texas games last season. During the tournament, I'll watch most of the games from the E8 on...

    I was a big fan of the Dye signing...still am. I think she will help make up for the loss of Davis more than any of the other players on the roster that will be stepping into new or expanded roles. I've watched a handful of Troy's games over the last 6 years whenever they are playing one of...
