Lady Vols remain confident entering new era

Posted:

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - This year's Tennessee Lady Vols have been challenged with upholding Pat Summitt's legacy without her.

Summitt made the program the standard bearer for women's college basketball, but she stepped aside in April after announcing last year she has early onset-dementia.

The program has been turned over to new coach Holly Warlick, an assistant to Summitt for 27 years.

Summitt left the Vols with 1,098 victories and eight national titles in 38 seasons. She remains on staff as head coach emeritus, attends nearly every practice and is expected to be in the stands for all of Tennessee's home games.

Though Tennessee is ranked 20th, it's the school's lowest position in the Top 25 since February 1985.
