KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Holly Warlick believes Tennessee's bid to return to national title contention is more a mental hurdle than a physical test.
The Lady Vols were rolling going into last season's NCAA tournament. The momentum carried only so far and Tennessee lost in a regional semifinal. Warlick wants to make sure her team doesn't peak too early again.
"I think our team needs to have a little bit more togetherness," the Tennessee coach told The Associated Press. "We have to have a little bit more discipline, a little bit more toughness. I thought we were tough at times, but not all the time. I thought sometimes when our back got against the wall, we folded a little bit."
