Tennessee almost turned the tables against Illinois this afternoon. After falling behind 0-2, the Lady Vols mounted a comeback winning the next two sets and forcing a fifth. But the comeback fell just short (25-22, 25-18, 21-25, 20-25, 15-8).
I will take an 0-2 start to the season every year if it’s against Final Four caliber opponents and we look like we belong on the same court as them. Very proud of how this team played. And I’m very excited about the rest of the season!
Much, much more when I get back to Knoxville.
UPDATE: There are some issues with the stats being reported for the matches this weekend. I think I’ve sorted out the right ones and I’ve manually added all of them for the past two matches into my stats pages here. I’ll have a weekend recap up tomorrow.
