A win Thursday night for No. 8 Tennessee against No. 13 Texas A&M (27-7/11-3) will see the Lady Vols (22-5, 13-1 SEC) crowned outright SEC regular season champions.
A victory over Arkansas on Sunday and losses from no. 10 Kentucky and Texas A&M saw the Lady Vols clinch at least a share of the title.
A win Thursday would also give the Lady Vols the No. 1 seed in the SEC Tournament, which begins March 6 in Duluth, Ga.
In their first season without long-time head coach Pat Summitt, The Lady Vols lead the SEC by two wins.
The match at Thompson-Boling Arena is also senior night.
Seniors Taber Spani and Kamiko Williams will receive recognition in an on-court ceremony before the game begins.
The Lady Vols will be looking for yet another big game from guard Meighan Simmons. The junior, who this season has led the team in scoring by nearly 100 points in total and has averaged 17.8 points per game, was recently named amongst 30 finalists for the 2013 Naismiths Women’s College Player of the Year award.
Standings at the top of the SEC conference will remain tight. Bar an upset, wins for both Kentucky and Georgia will be likely Thursday night. The two teams are set to play Ole Miss and Mississippi St. respectively, both of these currently sitting in the bottom three of the SEC conference standings.
Prior to tip off at 7 p.m., the most recent of Tennessee’s NCAA championship trophies will also be on display.
