LADY VOLS DEFEAT VIRGINIA 77-63

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- A record crowd at Virginia was nothing unusual for Tennessee (No. 5 ESPN/USA Today, No. 6 AP) to face, and with Angie Bjorklund getting her shooting stroke working, the Lady Vols rolled 77-63 on Sunday.
Bjorklund scored 24 points and hit the biggest shot of the game, a 3-pointer early in the second half to halt a rally by the 12th-ranked Cavaliers. It also quieted the crowd of 11,895 that was lured in by a promotion designed to set a new attendance mark for the women's program, and provide a boost for the underdog Cavaliers.
Bjorklund's shot with 18:14 left came after Virginia came close to within 42-39, and she was fouled and completed the four-point play. When Taber Spani followed with a 3-pointer, the Lady Vols' lead was back to 10.
Tennessee (3-0) avenged a loss on its own home floor to Virginia last season, and coach Pat Summitt said early on, Bjorklund seemed to be trying to do too much. She missed the loss with back problems.
"At first she was trying to do it all in about the first four minutes," Summitt said. "But she settled down after that. She played with a lot of confidence."
Playing for only the second time in Charlottesville, Tennessee led 40-33 at halftime and pulled away after the Cavaliers (3-1) made their burst. Virginia got no closer than seven the rest of the way.
Bjorklund had a lot to do with it.
"She tore it up tonight. She was just so hot. It was hard to stop her," Monica Wright said.
Shekinna Stricklen added 20 points and Glory Johnson 14 for Tennessee, now 12-2 against Virginia.
Wright, a pre-season All-American, led Virginia with 21 points, but made just 8 of 21 shots. A year ago, she scored 35 as the Cavaliers won 83-82 before 11,627 fans as Thompson-Boling Arena.
"We were making sure that never, ever, ever happened again," Johnson said.
Chelsea Shine, coming off a 27-point effort in a victory against South Carolina Upstate, had her first shot blocked by 6-foot-6 Kelley Cain and never seemed to recover. She scored three on 1-for-6 shooting.
"I think she seemed a little bit timid and easy shots she was missing," coach Debbie Ryan said.
Summitt said it's nothing new to see Cain make an early impression on defense.
"I think Kelley's presence definitely had an impact and has had an impact in every game," she said after Cain had six points, six rebounds and six blocks. "She this year is healthy, but she's also a lot smarter in not taking herself out of position and going for every block."
Ariana Moorer scored 12 for the Cavaliers and Simone Egwu had 10.
The Lady Vols used an early 24-9 run to open a 26-15 lead. Stricklen had eight points in the spurt, and Cain blocked three shots and altered several others.
Tennessee built its lead as high as 13 on several ocassions, but Wright and Moorer hit 3-pointers and Whitny Edwards had a jumper in an 8-2 run for Virginia to end the half.
The game was billed as Hot Dog Day, with every fan receiving a voucher for a free hot dog and drink as part of a promotion to draw the largest crowd in program history. The previous mark of 11,174 was set Feb. 5, 1986, also a Hot Dog Day, when Virginia played North Carolina at its old arena.

"SO THEY DOUBT ME?..WATCH ME WORK" KELSEY BONE: LadyGamecock



















Lady Gamecock fans...tonight I went to see Kelsey Bone play at Clemson University, and I was not disappointed. The freshman phenom is worth all the hype...oh wait...Kelsey has no hype...it's all about Griner, and Diggins...wow people just don't get it. Kelsey finished the game with 32pts/14rbs and it was only on maybe 4 of those shots that she had to really work hard. I saw up close and personal the jump hook, and the drop step, yea both were sweet. Yet let me tell you guys what impressed me the most about the Freshman, when they tied the game up to send it to the first overtime (oh yea the game went into double overtime), the team was up by two, and allowed Clemson to score. The players on the court came to the bench with their heads down, looking like they had just lost...and Kelsey screamed out umm I will paraphrase...lol "F that...we never been here before..c'mon let's go!" That right there lady gamecock fans is the HOPE I spoke about in my last blog.

So where is the love for Kelsey Bone? During Espn2 telecast of the Uconn vs Texas game, the announcers were talking about the "freshman to look out for" and can you believe that they did not even mention Kelsey? My goodness the #2 player in the country...(wrong rating...they will see) and you don't even mention her name? I'm just beside myself. Is it because she is at the University of South Carolina? No I know what it is...the commentators did not do their research. However you want to put it, they failed to acknowledge her...and now she is ready to give them no choice but to say "IT'S KELSEY BONE...YOU KNOW HER NAME, AND YOU KNOW HER WORTH" yeah you DOUBTED HER...NOW WATCH HER WORK!

LADYVOLS DEFEAT RED RAIDERS OF TEXAS TECH 91-53




SAN ANTONIO -- Returning to San Antonio likely won't be this easy for Tennessee.
Taber Spani scored 18 points and Glory Johnson added 17 as the Lady Vols (No. 5 ESPN/USA Today, No. 6 AP) crushed Texas Tech 91-53 on Tuesday night in what Tennessee hopes will be the first of two trips to the Final Four city this season.
The road back is bound to be tougher: Tennessee opened the second half on a 32-4 run, held Texas Tech to 30 percent shooting and handed the game over to Spani and the rest of the Lady Vols bench early.
About the only thing giving the game a Final Four feel was defending national champion Connecticut watching nearby, waiting to play Texas (No. 13 ESPN/USA Today, No. 10 AP) in the second game of a doubleheader.
"It gives [the players] a taste of what it's all about," Tennessee coach Pat Summitt said about playing in the San Antonio showcase. "Clearly, we all want to be back. It kind of whets your whistle a little bit."
Shekinna Stricklen scored 16 points for the Tennessee and Angie Bjorklund sank four 3-pointers to finish with 14. The mostly burnt-orange crowd here for the Longhorns took in a dominating preview of Tennessee, which will face Texas at home Dec. 6.
Kierra Mallard scored 15 points and was the only player in double figures for Texas Tech. The Lady Raiders have never beaten the Lady Vols in six tries.
Tennessee flirted with holding Texas Tech to a single-game school record for poor field percentage before the Lady Raiders scored 21 of their points in the final 10 minutes. Before then, Texas Tech was shooting just under 24 percent from the floor.
Like the three other teams in the AT&T Center for the doubleheader, Texas Tech was once a Final Four contender before longtime coach Marsha Sharp retired after the 2005-06 season. Coach Kristy Curry has been trying to get Texas Tech back on track since.
"This does not define our season," Curry said. "When you're called for this opportunity, do you turn it down? No. You know this is the right step to take to get Tech back to where we want to be."
The Lady Vols have now opened the year with two wins over Big 12 teams after beating Baylor (No. 9 ESPN/USA Today, No. 8 AP) on Sunday. They'll play another pair of ranked teams starting Sunday at Virginia (No. 17 ESPN/USA Today, No. 12 AP) and then Nov. 25 at Middle Tennessee (No. 24 AP).
Stricklen just wants to be back in Texas come April.
"As a team that's our main goal -- to come back here," Stricklen said. "Being here for the first time we really enjoyed it and we want to be back. We know what it takes to come back."

LADYVOLS DEFEAT BAYLOR 74-65

The Associated Press
Tennessee coach Pat Summitt wanted to keep Brittney Griner's dunking potential from being a distraction. So she reminded the Lady Volunteers that a dunk was only worth two points.
"Obviously going into it everybody's talking about Brittney Griner and the dunk," Summitt said of the 6-foot-8 Baylor freshman. "So I told them, 'Angie (Bjorklund) and (Shekinna) Stricklen: if she dunks, just go hit a 3. Now we're one up.'"
Stricklen ended up with 25 points and 14 rebounds and No. 8 Tennessee beat No. 7 Baylor 74-65 on Sunday in the State Farm Tip-Off Classic.
Griner, women's college basketball's celebrated recruit dunked in an exhibition game and a few times in warmups. She scored 15 points and had four blocks but never got close enough to the rim for a chance to dunk during the game.
The Lady Volunteers(1-0) didn't need many 3s, but instead used a combination of post players _ who spent much of the game in foul trouble _ to shut down Griner. The freshman found herself with four fouls 2 minutes after halftime and sat for 6½ minutes of the second half.
"They were petty fouls. That's part of the learning I'm going to have to do coming from the high school level to the college level, playing with fouls," Griner said.
Baylor led by as many as seven points in the first half and entered halftime with a 26-24 lead, but Tennessee scored the first 12 points coming out of the break.
Stricklen hit a fast-break layup on a steal and assist from Kamiko Williams to cap a 14-2 run that gave the Tennessee a 52-38 lead with 9:49 left.
"They made a few runs, and Shekinna would come down and make a jump shot," Lady Vols center Kelley Cain said. "When she makes those shots, it really picks up our team and lets us know that we're still in it, and that we aren't going to let them come back."
Baylor (0-1) got within nine points several times but kept sending the Lady Vols to the free throw line, where they shot 85 percent in the second half.
The Lady Vols were looking for redemption after losing in the opening round of the NCAA tournament in March. Summitt has praised her young players for working harder than all her recent teams in the offseason.
"I brought them into a hornet's nest," Baylor coach Kim Mulkey said. "(Summitt's) mad at her team. They lost in the first round of the tournament, they got kicked out of their locker room and I'm coming to Knoxville, Tennessee.
"You think I wasn't sitting there proud as a peacock when we had a lead at halftime and proud at the end of the game? Absolutely, but I'm not into moral victories," she said.
Melissa Jones led the Lady Bears with 21 points, and Morghan Medlock had 10 points and 13 rebounds.
Cain had 15 points for Tennessee, and Bjorklund added 13.
Both teams featured underclassmen, and both teams shot poorly in the first half: Baylor 29.2 percent and Tennessee 28.9 percent.
"With the hype of the game and the large crowd, we were nervous in the first half," Summitt said. "I told them at halftime, 'OK, you can settle down now. Most of these people are cheering for you.'"
The 2010 women's Hall of Fame class was introduced as part of the State Farm Tip-Off Classic festivities.
The inductees include Leta Andrews, the winningest high school girls' basketball coach; celebrated USA basketball player Teresa Edwards; Connecticut star Rebecca Lobo; WNBA standout Teresa Weatherspoon; and former Maryland coach Chris Weller.
"You saw the past, the present and the future," Mulkey said. "I thought it was a great way to start off the season, except for the loss."

Avant & Simmons Sign with Lady Vols

Tennessee officially added a women’s basketball backcourt for next season as point guard Lauren Avant and off guard Meighan Simmons signed letters of intent Thursday with the Lady Vols.
Avant, a two-time Division II-A Miss Basketball honoree from Memphis Lausanne Collegiate School, said via text message that she signed at school. The 5-foot-9 Avant committed to the Lady Vols as a ninth grader.
Simmons, from Steele High in Cibolo, Texas, signed at school along with several other athletes. She was a late addition to UT’s class. A scholarship became available when guard Cait McMahan decided to stop playing because of persistent knee problems.
“This is a great opportunity,’’ Simmons said. “I’m so excited. I can’t wait to go to college.”
The 5-9 Simmons averaged 25 points per game last season in helping Steele reach the Class 4A state semifinals for the second consecutive season. She sounded eager to play for UT coach Pat Summitt.
“She’s so straightforward,’’ Simmons said. “And she know what she wants. I’m going to give her what she wants, whether she likes it or not.”

The Pride of the LadyVols on the LINE vs Baylor


















Hello ladyvolnation! Well the two exhibition game are over and done with..defeating Carson Newman by 90, and then defeating Delta State by 33. We all watched how potent our offense can be, when Angie Bjorklund is hitting shots. She was 9-14 for 21pts, and the freshman phenom, Taber Spani...oooh the girl has a shot that is just beautiful, but what I love most is her "nose" for the ball. She has managed to grab 19 rebounds in her first two games as a Lady Vol, with 14 of those being offensive boards. With those two hitting on the perimeter, it opened up the inside game, and we watched Kelly Cain and Glory Johnson go to work against Carson Newman. However against Delta St. Glory was hampered by foul trouble, and at times what looked like fatigue. Without Vicki Baugh on the floor, Glory has to be a presence, no excuse me, Glory must be the ENFORCER. Don't forget, she was ranked #2 in the country when she came in last season. She is very capable of wreaking havoc on the boards, and scoring in the post.










That brings me to the reason I spoke of "pride" of our LadyVols...last year this team manage to "fail" at almost everything possible. Yeah it was extremely hard for me to type that sentence, but unfortunately it's true. Last season, teams really believed they could come into the Summit and beat them..and that happened way too much then, but this can be an embarrassment on a whole other level. The last dunks to come in womens basketball all belong to LadyVols, except for the one dunk Sylvia Fowles got in her last season at LSU. Michelle Snow, and Candace Parker have both dunked in games on other opponents floor, most notable Parker in Connecticut. No opponent has dunked on a LadyVol team...EVER! We know Brittney Griner is "itching" to be the first to ever do that...but Kelly Cain has a different thought towards that...NOT IN OUR HOUSE! Kelly is playing great, but most importantly, she looks healthy. She stands at 6'6 and with Griner at 6'8, that battle in the post is going to be something. No matter what, and at ALL cost..there will not be a dunk by Brittney Griner at the expense of the "Big Orange" cause even if we win the game...sportscenter will show that dunk over and over. So memo to all of our post players...you have 5 fouls, use them.

The lineup that worked well together: Cain,Stricklen,Bjorklund,Spani, and Manning. Johnson seemed to flourish coming off the bench. Yet, no matter what 5 players start on Sunday, we should have our way with Baylor. Hopefully our ladys will strap that Orange on...and seek REDEMPTION. As far Cain and Griner...Cain when asked about the game Sunday said; "I'm ready for EVERY GAME"...I'm ready! Brittney get your weight up...your height is superior, but you don't weigh enough.

SHAQ SMASHING GILBERT ARENAS FIANCE??? COME ON NOW

Shaq’s Pimp Focus is Strong..Sleeping With Gilbert Arenas Fiance..

Shaq’s Pimp Focus is Strong..Sleeping With Gilbert Arenas Fiance..

Before we even get into this, one thing you should know. All athletes cheat (99% to be exact). Shaq been cheating since he stepped onto the floor.
Everyone knows that Shaq been breaking lamps with a lot of women besides his wife Shaunie and it is known that Shaunie hasn’t been faithful either.
If this was a random cheating story, wouldn’t even be a story, so when I was told to check out TheYBF.com about Shaq stepping out I didn’t think much of it until I saw the person that Shaq is accused of playing Bed Gammon with with was Gilbert Arenas’ fiance Laura Govan.
Allegedly Miss Govan and Mrs. O’Neal are friends.
Is this a case of it ain’t no fun if the homies can’t have none?
Even with all that being said still was going to *JamarcusShrug* the situation until I saw the emails as well on TheYBF.com. Which are quite hilarious.
First thing you will notice is to be a cheater you do not have to be a great speller. Actually they both seem to be having a hard time with the English language as a whole, but I digress.
Wonder what Agent 0 thinks about Shaq “Breaking Lamps” especially considering he is about to have his third child with Miss Govan.
Laura Govan3
Maybe he should go on Maury cause he may not be the father.
Here are a couple of pictures of Gilbert’s Fiance’

Well one thing is for sure, Ms. Braxton has some definite eye candy for the ladies in this new video. Trey Songz is definitely the 'bizness', and isn't Shannon Brown just as cute as he wanna be?
