Lady Vols to host regional as 10th seed in NCAA Tournament

Knoxville, TENN. (WATE) - Gathered on the field of Sherri Parker Lee Stadium, the Lady Vols watched as the NCAA Selection Show revealed them as the nation's 10th ranked team, and yet again, as a regional host.

"That was what we expected. We thought we might be a 9 seed, but 10 is great. To be a 10th seed in the country, we're proud of that," said co-head coach Ralph Weekly.

Tennessee was one of nine SEC teams to earn a top 16 seed and regional host site -- a new NCAA record.

All thirteen SEC teams reached the NCAA Tournament for the second year in a row.

Tennessee will host Monmouth Friday night at 5:30 PM. James Madison and Ohio will round out the regional. If the Lady Vols advance, and the Georgia Bulldogs do the same in their regional, Tennessee will travel to Athens for the Super Regionals May 25th-27th.
