  Lady Vol Homecoming   

'Simply the best ever'

Thousands welcome home 3-time champion Lady Vols

Amid the banners from five previous championships, the massive projection screen in the rafters of Thompson-Boling Arena displayed a single word Monday -- "Dynasty."

  • Barmore: Lady Vols the greatest women's team ever
    It turns out that Louisiana Tech coach Leon Barmore had no reason at all to worry about what conference the officials were from.
    Stocked Lady Vols confident the best is yet to come
    Tennessee this, Tennessee that. Tired of hearing about the Tennessee Lady Vols? Get used to it. This group is just getting warmed up.
    Lady Vols cap perfect season with 3rd straight title
    There was never really any doubt. Three straight national championships, six in 12 years, and all but one player coming back next season. Tennessee is no longer a very good women's basketball program. It's an outright dynasty.
    Holdsclaw shines as Lady Vols three-peat
    This wasn't just a historic night for Tennessee, it was a coronation for Chamique Holdsclaw. Say hello to Her Airness.
    No end in sight for Lady Vols' reign
    Try this for a measure of how good Tennessee is and will be: All-American Chamique Holdsclaw, voted the outstanding player of the tournament, had 25 points, 10 rebounds and six assists in Sunday night's 93-75 championship victory over Louisiana Tech.
    Slow start spoils Tech's chances
    Great? Certainly. But the greatest ever? Louisiana Tech's exhausted and beaten players weren't ready to bestow that honor on Tennessee even though the unbeaten Lady Vols had just battered them from start to finish in one of the NCAA's most lopsided champi onship games.
