The Tennessee Lady Vols look for another win after beating Ohio State on Friday.

The Lady Vols are allowing 30.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 40.6 rebounds per game. The Tennessee Lady Vols are 5-1 on neutral courts this season.
Syracuse went into Thompson–Boling Arena earlier this season and lost by one bucket. Now, this game will be played on a neutral court where the Orange stand more of a chance and should probably be nice sized favorites. Syracuse has more depth on the offensive end, just beat possibly the second best team in the tournament and already proved it can play with the Lady Vols in their house.
Look for Syracuse to advance to the Final Four.
