Tennessee has always recruited what the services say are the best players because 80 percent of the time the services are right. Some players that play at small schools or don't go out on the summer circuit can slip through the cracks and not get rated or get rated as a three star or lower because no one has taken or had the time to watch them play. The truth is we very seldom recruited Tennessee players when Pat or Holly coached here.. I can see this staff taking somewhat of a new approach as we've got three or more Tennessee players on the radar that will be coming in future years. Every big school has a list they start out with and they hope to get three or four players off that list. When that fails they have a few backups so the class does not go empty. I think you should have a list of the top 10 players in Tennessee and have the Assistants take a look at all of them you may find one or two that are just as talented as the players on the services lists who the services did not know about and never scouted.

Coach Brown was on a sports radio show this afternoon giving his assessment of the men and women's basketball teams.....The man is quite informed and expresses himself very well....

When asked what is the one thing a player, either man or woman, can do to be a better player, he gave several strong answers, but he kept going back to have the player watch videos of themselves making the mistakes that led to the needless turnovers, or wasted possessions. He was adamant about this.

He really likes Key and thinks, with the proper motivation and teaching, she can become the dominate force the Lady Vols need to become elite again. In short, she is the key!

Listening to him give advise and opinions, I can see why Kellie wanted him helping her. He is an ace that can only help.
The team look much better since he has been in town. He has a very good basketball mind. Glad he is around.

The crazy part is the player herself said she wasn’t interested in being a Lady Vol. That has come from the horses mouth several of times so why are we not believing what the player is saying ? I am upset we didn’t get in on her before her senior year!! But why do people keep saying we missed a golden opportunity when she herself has said she wasn’t ever interested or wanted to be a Lady Vol.

Do we think Rhyne is just talking to talk and maybe secretly she wanted to be a Lady Vol or are we saying we missed a chance to change her mind?

She was raised by a mother who didn’t like the Lady Vols because they basically beat her team’s a$$ repeatedly while she was at Florida playing 😂😂😂. Growing up hearing that I can’t help but to think that had a part in her not wanting to be a Lady Vol😂 So besides the previous coaching staff I guess we should blame Pat for not recruiting her mom to TN😂

Her finalist were Kentucky, South Car. and Louisville.
Only thing i heard directly from Rhyne was she didnt give UT a shot because they were so late to the party and she eluded to that fact in this article. https://www.kentucky.com/sports/spt-columns-blogs/mark-story/article219926465.html "She said no to the Lady Vols because “they were the last to recruit me, so I just didn’t feel like we had as good a connection.”

Coach Brown has a lot of film for Horston to watch....She makes a lot of mistakes that end up needless turnovers...But, then she can shoot lights out too..

A tale of two city player...
