An interesting analysis from Chris Pendley over at SB Nation's Rocky Top Talk to preview Tennessee's second round matchup against St. John's: which SEC team is most similar to the Red Storm?
Most Similar Team: Texas A&M. It's not a clean match, but Handford's game reminds me of a not-as-good Courtney Walker. Walker and Courtney Williams both love penetration drives. Walker also has a perimeter shot; Handford hasn't hit a three all season. She hasn't even attempted one! Amber Thompson is a decent match with Achiri Ade; like Handford, she doesn't get to play with a Karla Gilbert comparable.
The other place where this might not be a clean match was one of the keys to the Lady Vols beating the Aggies earlier this season: the Red Storm are a significantly better three point shooting team at 34.3% for the season.
