Lady Vols eager to end their Final Four drought

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee has a golden opportunity to end its Final Four drought and reclaim its status as one of the nation's elite teams.

The Lady Vols (27-5) open NCAA tournament play Saturday against Northwestern State (21-12) as a No. 1 seed for the first time since 2011. They've won seven straight games and 13 of their last 14. Their scheduled first- and second-round games are on their home floor. If they reach the Final Four, they'd get a chance to play for a national title in Nashville, a three-hour drive from Tennessee's campus.

Tennessee is the only school to reach the tournament every year since the NCAA started running the event in 1982, but the Lady Vols haven't been to the Final Four since their 2008 national title.
