Tennessee women’s basketball avenged a regular-season loss to No. 3 LSU with a 69-67 SEC Tournament semifinal win Saturday in Greenville, South Carolina.
And the Lady Vols might have started a dance-off.
During the Tigers’ 76-68 win in front of a record-breaking crowd in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on Jan. 30, star guard Angel Reese stole the ball from Tennessee’s Rickea Jackson and took off for a fast-break layup. After Jackson was whistled for a foul on the play, Reese started making moves from her viral TikTok dance.
Jackson mimicked those moves as she celebrated with teammates after the Lady Vols’ win on Saturday.
