Williams leads Tennessee to Elite Eight with all-around performance

The Tennessee Lady Vols beat the Oklahoma Sooners 74-59 today to advance to the Elite Eight, quite an accomplishment given the number of injuries they sustained in Holly Warlick's first season.

David Hooper of SB Nation's Rocky Top Talk highlighted the performance of Kamiko Williams in his recap of the game.

...on Tennessee's side of the ball, many things well quite well. Kamiko Williams started the game with a couple early steals to help build a quick 9-2 lead and allow Tennessee to set a fast pace. UT's passing was very crisp, especially in the first half when they tallied an 11/4 A/TO (with those 11 assists for only 18 made shots)...the star of the night was Kamiko Williams, with 15 points on 8 shots, a 4/2 A/TO, 7 rebounds, and three steals for the most complete and efficient stat line of the team. Breadsticks are all hers tonight, and well earned.

Not mentioned, but just as important to the Lady Vols' success, was Williams' defense on Sooners point guard Aaryn Ellenberg who was just 5-for-21 from the field.
