Basketball writer Mechelle Voepel of espnW assesses the job first-year Tennessee head coach Holly Warlick has done this season of leading the Lady Volunteers. After losing all five starters from 2011-12 and missing three starters this year for a combined 50+ games, Warlick still guided the Big Orange to an SEC regular-season championship at 14-2, a 24-7 overall record and a ranking in the nation's top 10 entering the upcoming NCAA tournament.
Voepel used the following pull-out quote from long-time Georgia head coach Andy Landers:
"What Holly [Warlick] did was incorporate some freshmen and some players who'd played totally different roles a year ago and made them a very, very good basketball team. ... Holly took what she had and basically rebuilt Tennessee this year into a Southeastern Conference champion."

Penn Relays Press Conference Audio/Video (Includes J.J. Clark)
Former Vol Justin Gatlin advanced from the prelims to the semifinals in the men's 60m dash. He did so with a time of 6.64 that won heat seven.
In the women's 3000 meters, ex-Lady Vol Jackie Areson moved out of the qualifying round to the final. Her season-best 9:12.62 readout left her fourth in section one and eighth-fastest of the qualifiers for Sunday's final.
It was a mixed bag in the women's 800m prelims. Erica Moore finished second in section three in 2:00.24 to advance to a Sunday final as the second-fastest qualifier. Phoebe Wright, on the other hand, led her race through 400 meters but could not hold on, settling for fifth place in section one in 2:03.11.
The only non-American Tennessee product in action on day one was Patricia Hall. The Jamaican sprinter advanced out the first round of the women's 400 meters with a 52.99 readout but saw her road come to an end in that event when she checked in third in heat three of the semifinals at 53.21.
Aries Merritt (men's 60m hurdles) and Tianna Madison (women's 60m dash) will compete for the first time on Saturday, representing the United States in first-round races. Gatlin has a semifinal race and potentially a final as well on Saturday.
