Congratulations to the Lady Vols on a big win yesterday in the first-round of the NCAA Tournament. I think Pat and company sent a message to the rest of the field--we're here and we're not going anywhere.
Hopefully this intensity will continue tomorrow night as we shoot for a chance to get to the Sweet 16.
The other big news was that Candice Parker made history dunking not once but twice in an NCAA Tournament game. While it was one of those moments that as a Lady Vols' fan made me go, "Wow, cool!", I was more impressed with how it sparked the team, leading some big runs that sealed the game early for the Lady Vols. That kind of spark and intensity will be needed as the Lady Vols try to get back to the finals this year in a tough bracket. But based on what I saw yesterday, they could do it.
