Vols win SEC basketball championship

I have always admired Pat Summitt’s coaching ability and she did it again yesterday when the Vols won the SEC tournament championship again. Arkansas had a great team this year and even beat the Vols for the first time in Knoxville but the lady Razorbacks lost to LSU in the tournament.

Here is a link to the story from the Knoxville paper.
