12.18.2012 Daily Bears Report: The Lady Vols Cometh

Somewhat lost in the hubbub over next week's bowl game and our MBB team's strange propensity for playing down to their opponent is the fact that our WBB faces off tonight against one of the premier programs in the world of NCAA women's basketball: the Tennessee Lady Volunteers.


Tonight's game will be broadcast on ESPN for all to see and gives Baylor a chance to regain some of the luster lost in the defeat in Hawaii to Stanford, a loss which, it should be noted, occurred without our second-best player. Anyway, since there's not much going on tonight, I think I'll do a GDT for that game that will go up at 6:30.

Does anybody else find it strange that the Lady Vols have their own logo? Do any other programs have separate logos for men and women? Do we? Have I just missed it all this time?

Women's college basketball -- Tennessee Lady Vols prep for Baylor Lady Bears - ESPN
Since a season-opening loss, everything is clicking for Tennessee. But can the Lady Vols keep it going against the defensive roadblock of Baylor?

Last night, our men managed to squeak by (I say that knowing they won by 16) the USC Upstate Spartans. Because you can't expect them to beat that kind of program by more than that. USC Upstate is for real.
