Even in 15-point loss, Tennessee Lady Vols showed promise at UConn

Usually, when a basketball team leads by three at halftime only to lose by 15, the narrative is that the winning side was just messing around in the first half and was unbeatable once they got focused. However, that’s not fully the case for the Tennessee Lady Vols in their 60-45 loss at the No. 3 ranked UConn Huskies Thursday night.

Amidst all the hype surrounding the return of the rivalry and the bad blood between the two schools, the fact of the matter is UConn is truly on a much higher level right now. Kellie Harper has a young team and is trying to get them to find their identity.
