The Tennessee Lady Vols started the NCAA tournament in high fashion tonight, downing an overmatched Furman squad 8-0 in 6 innings (mercy rule) behind the stellar pitching of Ace Monica Abbot.
Abbot (43-2) had 13 strike outs versus ZERO hits in leading the Lady Vols past the 1st round. Tennessee, seeded 5th, will face North Carolina next in Knoxville. (Abbot and Rhodes combined on the perfect game)
Tennessee is ranked 1st in one major poll and 2nd in the other, is now 55-5 on the season. How in the world are they seeded 5th? You would think at least some of those other 4 seeds would be better (according to the seedings) yet only Oklahoma is ahead of them in 1 poll and none have the record that the Lady Vols have.
I would hate to see the NCAA Men's Basketball tourey seeded by the same people that did this.
