GO MEMPHIS TIGERS!!! GO VANDERBILT LADY ‘DORES!!!
Oh the frustration…The Tennessee Vols mens team lost on a last second shot. I had such high hopes for the Lady Raiders from Middle Tennessee and thought they would be the sleeper of the tournament but it was not to be – with 10 seconds and the ball in their half court they were unable to execute a final shot to win and lost by 1 point. This team will be better for this experience and have become a quality basketball program. My beloved Tennessee Lady Vols are very young and overwhelmed as they were bounced soundly in the first round. And finally, a big dissapointment was the snub issued by the NIT to the Vanderbilt Commodores. This quality team was not invited to post season play. All of these teams will be players in the Big Dance next year.
The Memphis Tigers continue to roll in tournament play and are a sound top tier team. The Tigers seem to step it up as necessary to win the game. The Vanderbilt Lady ‘Dores have also demonstrated they are a team that may go very deep in the tournament. Good luck to the Tigers and the Dores!
