So, it takes a special kind of athlete to meet these massive back-to-back challenges - two of America's best women's teams in three days. Then, with self-assurance and a joyful heart, you have to embrace this daunting battle on Pat Summit's court and enjoy the environment their fans, band and spirit squad create. Special athletes that can handle this kind of challenge come to Stanford - and a tough venue brings out the best in them.
The Lady Vols are rebuilding this year, but they're tough. Few teams could lose what they lost from last year and be ranked #9. In their game against the University of Texas on Sunday the 9th it was the guards - Meme Jackson and Evina Westbrook that led them in scoring. They combined for fifty-six points. They're not going to give anything to anybody - you've got to beat them.
We'll have to play especially tough on their home floor. Nothing comes easy in Thompson - Boling Arena.
Everyone needs to be on.
We can do it.
