Kellie Harper recaps Lady Vols’ NCAA Tournament win versus Saint Louis

No. 4 seed Tennessee (24-11, 13-3 SEC) defeated No. 13 seed Saint Louis (17-18, 10-6 Atlantic 10), 95-50, Saturday at Thompson-Boling Arena in the first round of the 2023 NCAA Tournament.

Lady Vols’ head coach Kellie Harper discussed Tennessee’s win after the game.

“I’m excited about how we played,” Harper said. “I thought our team came in, handled business, did what we needed to do. You know, Saint Louis has been on a run. They’ve been playing some really good basketball. They’ve had a lot of momentum.

“I thought defensively, in that second quarter, we were able to really set the tone of how the game was going to go for the duration. Really proud of our team. Every single person that went in the game did something positive and productive on both ends of the court. You know, it’s been a long couple weeks. I think our team, we’ve had good practices, some good energy, and, again, we were just dialed in today.”
