2021-22 Women's Basketball Cumulative Statistics - University of Tennessee Athletics

Dye has really been coming on in the last few games. She was making like 37 percent just a few games ago now closing in on 44 percent. Key has 65 blocks on the season. That would project to to around 130 for the season since were about half way through. If that happens she would be at 288 and be the all time block shot leader at Tennessee.

With about 20-30 fewer total games than the current all-time shot block leader. 28 last season and 30 the year before.........

I think that she's up there with Brittany Griner as far as paint enforcement goes. Griner averaged 5.1 blocks over her career, but interesting that she doesn't have (I think) any triple doubles to her name. I believe that Tamari already has 3.

I don’t recall BG having any triple doubles. She usually didn’t have enough rebounds. For her size and build I could never understand why she wasn’t averaging double digit boards.

I can remember several games she had double digit blocks. Always enjoyed watching her play, she was an enforcer. Especially as a freshman, players just had NOT seen that size in the women’s game before. It was obvious everyone went out and got them a 6’9” male practice player to simulate lol.

As I remember, ace was always in the doghouse with Pat. Ace seemed to shrug off what Pat said to her.
Clement was the Horston headcase of her day. She came, along with the rest of that ballyhooed class, with ridiculous accolades -- the hotshot point guard who would push Kellie for playing time as an underclassman before taking over when she graduated. She had good moments her first couple of seasons and contributed to their undefeated title run, but she didn't have near the impact of her three classmates.

By her junior year it was time for her to be THE point guard, and she completely imploded -- turnovers, poor shooting, a stagnant offense. Pat eventually had to pull her and let Kara Lawson, a true freshman at the time, take over. Lawson would lead the team to the National Championship game. Clement never became a good offensive player or came close to living up to her high school billing, but redefined herself as a defensive role player who started alongside Lawson in the backcourt...

Her lack of rebounding followed her to the WNBA. I sensed that she wasn't physically strong enough and could be pushed out of her position a lot easier than Tamari.

Another similarity between Griner and Tamari is the ability to block the guards shooting 3's. Tamari is surprisingly mobile for her size and how quickly she can close out on shooters. I watched some of the clips against Arkansas and there were two plays in particular that were impressive. One was where Ellis made a cut to the basket ahead of Key, but still got her layup blocked (the recovery time was almost instantaneous). The other was on a kickout to Ellis for a 3 that Tamari reversed direction on and blocked the shot while grabbing the rebound. She's quick, and there are no easy shots to be had when she's in the zip code...even if you think you have her beat. That's an area where I think she's better than Boston at. Put Tamari in that for that play, and Hansen from Mizzou doesn't hit the game winner at the buzzer.

All that to throw a little shade a Jordy. This Vandy fan thinks he is so smart. Actually all Vandy fans think they are brilliant. Hope the LVs throttle the black and yellow by about 40!

Yeah...but she was nice to look out. If I recall, she broke some impressive Philly scoring records, but yeah...didn't come close to being a reliable scorer for Tennessee.

And yet she was recruited by Pat. Pat obviously could not recruit her way out of a shoebox. She should have coached at MTSU or some other mid-major outpost.

While Ace struggled w TOs when she first took over as PG, she ended with a very high a/t.o ratio. She had great court vision. She did lose her outside shot for awhile, and it was painful. Once Lawson was here, they didn't need Ace to score fm deep.

In Ace's junior year, the Final Four was in her hometown of Philly and she magically found her shooting touch in the semis against Rutgers and had a great game. Looked ready to show out in the championship game, then turned her ankle in morning shootaround when she stepped on Michelle Snow's foot and didn't get to play in the final. Rotten luck, but just as well, Geno put on a back door clinic and hammered us in the final.

Her Sr year, after Catch got hurt, Ace played very well. In fact, Ace, Kara, and Gwen Jackson led the Catchless LVs to a huge and epic victory over Uconn 92-88 in a packed TBA. That team flamed out early in the tourney tho to end the Meek era.

She just came off a season where she average a double double what lack there of ? Her career WNBA averages are 17.7 Pts and 7.6 Rebounds per game . Griner im speaking of ? Each year she has improved her rebounding . Her rookie year she average 6.3 and has since climbed each season with that stat.

Through 4 SEC games Keyen is shooting 85.7% from the field. 12-14, if she’s going to finish like that she needs more touches.

Tamari is finishing at 60%. Tess 3% is up to 44%, lots of players stepping up here in conference play.
Thanks for working up those stats and publishing them. Green gives our post game a different dimension from finesse players like Dye (and to a certain extent - Key). She's a bully down low. A nice complementary piece of the puzzle.

I actually think that she has earned to play more than she does. She is automatic when she catches the ball inside with her back to the goal and does her quick and strong spin move to score the layup, I would like to see the combo of Key and Green more often, as people are double and triple teaming Key and this would lead to an easy assist from Key to Green for the layup. Yum!!

Is like to see some high low. Key has that elbow jumper. Put her up there and let her shoot all day if they aren’t gonna get up on her. Then let Dye or Green go to work.

Same plan as Ole Miss a lot of shots in the paint for Horston and Dye if Vandy decides they are going all out to prevent Key. Some kickouts to actual three point shooters Darby, Burrell, and Puckett. Vandy is a better three point shooting team at home than on the road and better overall than Ole Miss from the three. They play the same type pressure defense. They do not have the inside presence on offense that Ole Miss had.
