    Lady Vols’ Jordan Horston, Alexus Dye, and Rae Barrell met with the media after Tennessee’s exhibition win on Wednesday night.

    The Lady Vols’ fall is off to a hot start after Tennessee took down Georgia College in an exhibition game on Wednesday night. Tennessee head coach Kellie Harper led to Vols to a 108-44 win over the Bobcats, whose head coach is Harper’s brother, Ross Jolly.

    The Lady Vols cruised to victory over the Division-II opponent, and will now turn their attention to the regular-season opener next Wednesday night. Tennessee will host Southern Illinois at 7:00 p.m. ET.

    After Tennessee’s exhibition win, three of the Vol players sat down to speak with the media at the arena. Jordan Horston, Alexus Dye, and Rae Burrell spoke about their perspective of how the game unfolded, and what it was like just to be back in the traditional Tennessee atmosphere.

    “It was amazing,” Burrell said after the game. “I love the fans. I love the energy they give us. It felt great to be back to normal.”

    Burrell led the team with 18 points, followed by Horston with 14 and Dye with 12. Additionally, Tennessee was able to really spread out the minutes on Wednesday night, allowing all 12 of Tennessee’s players between 13 and 23 minutes of in-game time.
