KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — For sixth-ranked Tennessee, December has been a time for adjusting on the go.
The Lady Volunteers had to play without their starting point guard during a two-game road trip in the Northeast. Now they must adjust to traveling across the country for a two-game stand on the West coast.
So far everything has worked out for Tennessee (6-2), which got victories against No. 23 DePaul and No. 11 Rutgers. After spending approximately 32 hours in Knoxville, the Lady Vols on Thursday boarded a plane bound for Los Angeles, where they will face UCLA on Saturday before traveling to No. 4 Stanford on Tuesday.
Making adjustments is nothing new to Tennessee, which has been adapting to changes ever since coach Pat Summitt revealed she had been diagnosed with early onset dementia.
