My intellectual mind said to pick Wichita State because one never knows which Pitt team will show up. My emotional mind said to select Pitt because I always want the local universities to advance. Although I did not see the game (and I am glad I didn’t), it was probably a repeat of the Big East Tournament, Pitt’s last dance before joining the ACC.
Too many errors by Rutgers tonight. I truly want Stringer to join the three other women coaches, who have reached the 900th pinnacle, at a home game, but that’s a week away.
It is Griner and Williams vs. the Ogwumike Sisters. I am going for the sisters.
She is the reason why I love women’s college basketball. Godspeed.
Throughout my career, I have always made it a point that my life and my basketball program were an open book.
With that in mind, I have something I’d like to share with my Tennessee families – the university, boosters and fans of Lady Vol basketball.
Once last season concluded, I addressed some ongoing concerns regarding my health. After consulting with my local physicians, I decided to visit the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.
Earlier this summer, the doctors at the Mayo Clinic diagnosed me with early onset dementia (“Alzheimer’s Type”) at the age of 59.
I plan to continue to be your coach. Obviously, I realize I may have some limitations with this condition since there will be some good days and some bad days.
For that reason I will be relying on my outstanding coaching staff like never before. We have always collaborated on every facet of Lady Vol basketball; and now you will see Holly Warlick, Dean Lockwood and Mickie DeMoss taking on more responsibility as their duties will change significantly.
I love being your coach, and the privilege to go to work every day with our outstanding Lady Vol basketball student-athletes. I appreciate the complete support of UT Chancellor Dr. Jimmy Cheek and UT Athletics Director Joan Cronan to continue coaching at the University of Tennessee as long as the good Lord is willing.
I’ve been honest and shared my health concerns with you and now we’ll move forward to the business at hand…coaching a great group of Lady Vols. For the time being, I hope you will respect my privacy regarding this matter.
Go Lady Vols!

I just saw Notre Dame woman-handle UConn’s female phenom Maya Moore and the Lady Huskies, preventing UConn from a possible three-peat. I predicted a rematch of Connecticut’s only regular-season defeat at the hands of Stanford for the national championship. Stanford lost as well in the last six seconds of play. So it will be Texas A&M and Notre Dame for the crown.
