Lady Vols ready to compete for championships again

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee considers the opportunity to play for a national title in its home state the perfect chance to end its Final Four drought.

The Lady Vols opened practice this week with five of their top six scorers back from a team that went 27-8 last year and lost in a regional final for the third straight season. After overachieving in its first season under Holly Warlick, Tennessee believes it's ready to start competing for national titles again.

Tennessee hasn't reached a Final Four since its 2008 national championship. This year's Final Four takes place in Nashville, a three-hour drive from Tennessee's campus.

The high expectations represent a change from last year, when Southeastern Conference coaches picked Tennessee to finish fifth in the league. Tennessee instead won the SEC regular-season title.
