LOUISVILLE, KY -- We're only a day away from more Tennessee basketball, and this time it's the Lady Vols in the Sweet Sixteen.

Getting this far is old hat for UT. They've done it 32 times in 33 years, and their goals are much bigger.

All year, Holly Warlick's team has been on the "Grind for 9," meaning they want a ninth national title and first since 2008. On top of that, lone senior Meighan Simmons is on her grind just to get the first ever Final Four appearance in her storied Tennessee career.

"We just have to continue to tell each other never to give up and to push for 40 minutes straight until that clock hits 0:00," Simmons said. "And not letting up. If we do get a lead, just not letting up and continuing to have that fight. This team is completely different than last year's. We just need to continue to go out there and give our 110%. If we want to get to a Final Four, that's what we need to do."

Tennessee's 10-3 all-time against opponent Maryland, with their last game an 80-75 UT win in 2005. The game is Sunday at Noon on ESPN.
