TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WATE) – No. 20 Tennessee trailed by five points after three quarters before missing its first ten shots in the fourth. Alabama stepped on the gas during the Lady Vols slump, handing Tennessee an 86-65 loss on Thursday in Tuscaloosa.
The loss is Tennessee’s fifth in a row to Alabama and forth straight this season. Before the losing skid to the Crimson Tide, the Lady Vols were 42-0 against Alabama from 1984-2016.
Tennessee’s four game losing streak this season is their longest since their winless 0-6 season in 1970.
If you’re a glass half full type of person, there is still hope. Tennessee won a national championship in 1997 with 10 losses.
For now, the postseason is likely the last thing on Holly Warlick’s mind. The Lady Vols will play the rest of its games this month at home, starting Monday against Arkansas.
