It’s not their fault. The Tennessee Lady Vols really did try to schedule tough Kellie Harper’s first year on the job. However, they can’t control the fact that the Notre Dame Fighting Irish collapsed or that other major programs were historically bad.
What they can control, though, is that they have not secured enough quality wins at the moment to make up for that. After losing their third straight game Thursday, falling to the LSU Tigers on the road 75-65, this team is now 17-7 and 7-4 in league play. They only have one win over a top 50 RPI team, and it was by five against this same LSU squad at home.
