Basketball season is in full swing, and my Vols are doing really well so far! The Lady Vols are undefeated with a 14-0 record. They started their SEC schedule last week with a win over Auburn, and they are currently #7 in the nation! The men’s team has gotten off to a good start as well and a win against Kentucky on Rocky Top tomorrow will be huge as they kick off their SEC schedule. I’m pumped!
Not only am I a die hard UT football fan (which you all got to see a lot of this past fall), but I’m also a big Tennessee basketball fan – if you can’t already tell. Fun fact: My sweet Papaw played basketball for the University of Tennessee back when he was in school, so I always love hearing his stories from that time in his life! Another fun story — when I was cheering at UT, I became friends with a lot of the Lady Vol players. They were always so kind, really great students & absolutely hilarious to be around. I remember at every away game that we traveled with the Lady Vols, the coaches and players would always personally thank us for coming to cheer them on. They’re a really great bunch to be around! Unfortunately, I wasn’t cheering at UT when the amazing Pat Summitt was still coaching, but I was fortunate enough to be able to meet her and hear some great lessons from her before she passed away. She is and always will be a true legend at the University of Tennessee!
