KNOXVILLE, TN (Times Free Press) -- New coach. Same perch.

The Tennessee Lady Vols are the top seed in the Southeastern Conference basketball tournament for the third time in four years and for the 10th time since 1998. It is the first with head coach Holly Warlick, who had to replace all five starters from Pat Summitt's final team that reached the NCAA tournament's Elite Eight.

"Tennessee graduated a class last year that had been the No. 1 recruiting class in the country, so the dynamic was going to be different," Georgia coach Andy Landers said.
