THE LSU MATCH
  • Following three victories on the road against Southeastern Conference foes South Carolina, Florida and LSU, the Lady Vols will close out their four-match SEC road trip with a stop in Fayetteville, Ark.

  • Tennessee has won seven straight meetings over Arkansas dating back to Nov. of 2007. The overall series however is much closer, as the two teams have met 28 times, with each team winning 14 matches.

  • The Lady Vols have no problem playing well on TV, as the team has won 11 of its last 13 televised matches.

Closing Out an SEC Road Trip


  • Tennessee has won at least 15 SEC matches each of the last three seasons leading up to 2011, finishing with 15 in 2008 and 2010 and 16 in 2009. Rob Patrick is 148-90 in his career in the SEC. In 12 of his 14 seasons, he led the Lady Vols to a .500 or better record against the conference. In 2004, Tennessee roared through the conference with a 15-1 record, tying for first in the SEC and winning the SEC Tournament a week later.
  • By defeating LSU Friday and Florida last Sunday, it is the first time in school history that Tennessee has beaten both the Gators and Tigers on the road in the same season.
  • Following two road wins against USC and UF, the Southeastern Conference named Carly Sahagian the SEC Offensive Player of the Week, while junior DeeDee Harrison earned the league's Defensive Player of the Week honor. It was the first time since Oct. 20, 2008, that a pair of Lady Vols were bestowed conference accolades in the same week. .
