I can’t wait for the season to get started. With the NBA still in a lockout, it just has me feening even more to see my Lady Vols take the court. This year is sure to be adventurous, exciting, heart-stopping, and most important…SHOWTIME! Now I know that’s saying alot before this team even hits the floor, but it’s something about having Ariel Massengale at the helm of my beloved Lady Vols that just give me confidence. Heck I feel like I can average 15pts if she the one throwing me the dimes. With that said, the freshmen point guard has a lot on her plate, but something tells me she is up to the task. I’m happy she also has family in Tennessee, so we don’t have to worry about her getting homesick.
But this seasons team doesn’t just boast the #1 pg in the country, but add in Cierra Burdick, and Isabella Harrison, who both are sure to see playing time, now that Senior Alyssia Brewer left the team to join UCLA. I haven’t been this excited about a recruiting class since 2004! The reason why? Because this group of freshman get to be a part of a Senior laden squad that boasts Shekinna Stricklen (double S-Strickly Sickly), and Ms…Up Up Up and away, Glory Johnson, the hustler Alicia Manning, and then 5th year Senior Vicki Baugh. For anyone thinking that our bench is lacking because of the departure of Kelly Cain, Lauren Avant, and Brewer..you are sadly mistaken. Pat Summitt will still be able to look down that bench and not lose with whomever she puts into the game.
IT’S TIME FOR #9! PAT SUMMITT THIS SEASON IS ALL ABOUT YOU! DENVER HERE WE COME…IT WASN’T EASY, BUT NOW THAT WE ARE HERE…WE BROUGHT THE SCISSORS W/ US..NET CUTTING TIME!
