Lady Vols make a run at SEC title

The No. 7 seed Tennessee Lady Vols began their run for an SEC championship title Thursday, March 3 in the SEC Women’s Basketball Tournament at Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida. In the second round, the Lady Vols faced No. 10 seed Arkansas and beat the Razorbacks 68-51.

Tennessee advanced to the quarterfinals where they met No. 2 seed Texas A&M. Diamond DeSheilds’ 21 points and Bashaara Graves’ 19 points helped the Lady Vols defeat the Aggies 70-60 on Friday.

Saturday in the semifinals, the Lady Vols ended their run for the conference title when No. 3 seed Mississippi State came out on top with a final of 58-48.

There was more than just basketball action for the Local 8 sports team while in Jacksonville. We found some of the most exciting celebrations, pep rallies, and fan pre-game get togethers.

One group of dedicated Lady Vol fans meet each year at the SEC Women’s Basketball Tournament and they call themselves the “VIP Peeps!”

It’s a “girl’s trip” of three generations of ladies who travel to see the SEC Basketball Tournament each year. Plus these ladies travel in style!
