UTC and Lady Vols Put Winning Streaks on the Line in NCAA Tournament
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Tennessee and Chattanooga put long streaks on the line Saturday in their respective NCAA Tournament games with both teams looking to avoid a repeat of last year’s postseason disappointment.
The Lady Vols (27-5), the No. 2 seed in the Spokane Region, haven’t lost at home this season and are 54-0 in NCAA Tournament games on their home floor. Tennessee hosts No. 15 seed Boise State (22-10), which has never won an NCAA Tournament contest in two attempts.
Chattanooga (29-3), the No. 7 seed, carries a 25-game winning streak into its matchup with No. 10 seed Pittsburgh (19-11).
Both Tennessee and Chattanooga want to erase memories of last year’s tournament, when Chattanooga lost in the first round and the Lady Vols fell in a regional semifinal.
