Lady Vols feeling their way back to success

It wasn't looking like a typical season at Rocky Top when the Lady Vols lost to Chattanooga, 80-71, and then needed overtime to defeat Middle Tennesee, 88-81.

But a complete 102-57 thumping of North Carolina on Sunday shows that Tennesee women's basketball is feeling its way in the post-Pat Summitt era.

ESPN columnist Kate Fagen wrote that with a young and talented roster, the future looks bright for the Lady Vols and that a championship run may not be as far away as some people think.

Check out the highlights of the win over UNC where junior Meighan Simmons scored a career-high 33 points from everywhere on the court -- driving, three-pointers, pull-up jumpers. It was the most points for a Lady Vol since Candance Parker dropped 34 points against Notre Dame on March 30, 2008.
