Video: Tennessee's Meighan Simmons on remaining aggressive, resilient on a poor shooting night

Video of an interview with Meighan Simmons discussing how she persevered on a poor shooting night during Tennessee's 86-77 win over Texas A&M on Saturday (via mmcornelius23).

Naturally, David Hooper of SB Nation's Tennessee site Rocky Top Talk began his player-by-player analysis of the Lady Vols' players performances against Texas A&M with senior guard Meighan Simmons, who didn't have the best showing.

Like the LSU game, Tennessee owes the victory to fantastic interior play. Meighan Simmons again struggled from the field, shooting 3-17 (1-7 from three) and only getting to 15 points on the strength of 8-10 shooting from the line. Her defense has been solid, but the halfcourt shots just have not been falling for Tennessee's lone senior.

Yet, as noted in the comments over there, her ability to get to the line late in the game was crucial for the win and a sign of resilience that gave her team a boost.
