Less than four weeks have passed since Tennessee's backcourt played All-American caliber women's basketball and the Lady Vols looked like a Final Four team in thrashing Oklahoma.
The 96-75 victory Jan. 3 in UT's final non-conference game seems like months ago to Alyssia Brewer.
"It feels like we played OU in like November," the Tennessee forward said.
The SEC season has nurtured such a feeling. Conference play isn't half over, yet it's playing out like a marathon. The grueling games are taking a toll on everyone. No. 5 Tennessee (17-2, 5-1 SEC) is no exception as it prepares to host Auburn (11-9, 2-5) tonight at Thompson-Boling Arena.
