KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl sat in the student section tonight for the tipoff of the game between the fourth-ranked Lady Vols and top-ranked Duke.
He was shirtless and his chest was painted in orange with a "V" for Volunteers on it.
Coach Pat Summitt appeared to acknowledge him and gestured enthusiastically at Pearl.
Some of the men's players were with Pearl, spelling out "Go Vols" on their painted chests.
Duke won 74-70.
