All that, of course, is assuming Tennessee gets through the first round.
That's something it failed to do in 2009 after winning it all the previous season, the only time the Lady Vols got knocked out in the opener. The Lady Vols lost to Baylor in the 2010 regional semifinals and Notre Dame in the regional finals last year.
This time, they're going against the nation's top-scoring team. Tennessee-Martin is averaging 81.1 points, with Butler third in the nation at 24.1 per game.
"Tennessee girls, basketball means something to them," McMillan said. "It's meant something to them since they were real little. And the reason it means something in the state is because of Pat and the UT Lady Vols."
