The Lady Dawgs used a stifling defense to overcome an ugly offensive effort in toppling the #3 ranked Lady Vols. For all that Andy Landers has accomplished professionally, he has been cursed with the incredible misfortune of having the greatest coach in his sport's history as his in conference nemesis.
I've always compared Landers to Dean Smith...only imagine if Smith had been forced to play John Wooden 2, 3 or even 4 times per season...for 30 straight years. What would Smith's record and achievement list have looked like in that scenario?
What other Hall of Fame coach in any sport has faced such a burden? Regardless, Landers and his girls knocked down Summit and her boys for the big win. As David Ching said, they are back on the map.
If the Lady Dawgs take care of business against Ole Miss on Sunday, they should enter the Top 5. With a defense this tough, they could make a quality run in March.
