Lady Vols Meet Oklahoma On Sunday

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

The NCAA has announced game times for the Oklahoma City Regional, and No. 2 seed Tennessee has drawn the earlier of two contests Sunday at Chesapeake Energy Arena.

The Lady Vols (26-7) will face No. 6 seed Oklahoma (24-10) in regional semifinal game one at 4:35 p.m. ET (3:35 p.m. CT). Approximately 30 minutes afterward, No. 1 seed Baylor (34-1) will face No. 5 seed Louisville (26-8) in semifinal game two.

The winners of those contests will meet on Tuesday, April 2, at 9 p.m. ET (9 CT) in the NCAA Regional Final for the right to advance to New Orleans for the NCAA Women's Final Four.
ESPN2 will televise all three games, while ESPN3 will provide online coverage.

The Lady Vols are making their 31st regional appearance in NCAA play and own a 25-5 all-time record in Sweet 16 contests. This marks Tennessee's second trip to Oklahoma City for postseason play, as the 2008 squad defeated Notre Dame and Texas A&M there en route to the program's eighth NCAA title.

The Big Orange women are 4-1 in the series with the Sooners, prevailing over OU in Knoxville on Jan. 3, 2010, 96-75, in the last meeting between the schools. The #14/15 Lady Vols fell to #2/2 Oklahoma on Feb. 2, 2009, in their only game vs. that school in the Sooner State, dropping an 80-70 decision at the same arena, then known as the Ford Center.
