I don’t know if its been mentioned here in the shop. But the University of Tennessee Lady Volunteer’s winning the women’s SEC basketball tournament with Pat Summit suffering from dementia is pretty significant.

Whenever I actually followed the Lady Vols this season they were always losing or irrelevant. So, I was shocked to see that they had won the South Eastern Conference Championship this weekend at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN.

This is a Great Win for Pat and the University of Tennessee. This victory is even sweeter for her to win something in what is likely her final year as the head coach of the Lady Vols.This is also the 15th SEC tournament championship under Summit.

Moreover, It was a bit weird watching the game. It appeared that associate head coach, Holly Warlick, was really running things, which is very different from the past 37 years. It seemed as if Pat was just listening in.

The Lady Vols were led by the superb play of tournament MVP, Glory Johnson. She finished the game with 20 points and 10 rebounds. The 39-23 rebounding advantage was a key factor in beating the LSU Lady Tigers.

Young Buck is in the news again. This time as a very lucky victim. A person in a white Chevrolet Tahoe fired 11 shots at the former G-Unit star’s car outside of the LaBamba night club in the southern section of Nashville, TN early sunday morning around 3:30 am.

Unfortunately, his girlfriend, Kenyatta Rainey, riding with the Cashville rapper was shot in the shoulder and treated at the local Vanderbilt University Hospital.

Young Buck and Rainey were in a heated exchange at the nightclub before the shooting occurred. After the couple left so did the people that they were arguing with.

That’s Kray!!!

After taking a couple days off to attend to family matters former lakers star Lamar Odom is being reassigned to the Texas Legends, the Dallas Mavericks Developmental league team.

It was rumored earlier this week that Odom was looking for a buyout from his current deal with the Mavericks. But the mavericks owner, Mark Cuban, quickly refuted those claims by saying ” we wouldn’t do it.”

The move is viewed as helping Odom ease back into game shape.
