Why? Did the voters move them up because they realized they are better than last week?

No. Like I said before, if the teams above you lose, you might move up.

Thanks to fellow SEC mates, Arkansas and Kentucky, the Lady Vols moved up two spots.

While what you stated is generally correct, the "voters" obviously take other issues into consideration. For example, Louisville lost to then #4 NC State and fell two spots despite trouncing Boston College in their next game. UConn lost to then #19 Arkansas and remained at #3 by soundly trouncing DePaul in their second meeting of the year. Granted, DePaul was ranked #17, but then, Louisville beat DePaul by 41 when they played! Losing to a lower-ranked team doesn't necessarily, therefore cause a drop. Another example would be Tennessee's rise in the poll after losing a close game to UConn and beating then #12 Kentucky.

Just keep winning and rankings/seeds will take care of themselves.
Well wait a minute I just looked and TN didn’t gain in the NCAA net ranking ! they were number 15 and they stayed number 15 after beating the number 2 team in country which was number 3 before the loss and number 3 after the loss.

It was like the game was a wash and didn’t benefit or hurt either team 🤔

I don't get that at all. Makes no sense.

The fact that it didn’t hurt SC actually means a lot for us. Means the committee thinks we are a good team and a tough out. When teams have lost to bad teams or overrated teams it has dropped them a lot. Lose to a good team on the road and it hasn’t been hurting teams in the NET much.

But a win didn’t seem to help much i just didn’t get it but again i think our overall seed is gonna be good

This year I wish we could host the first two rounds! they earned it
