Tipton respected, Dake debuts at UT


Ashley Tipton earned respect from college basketball’s all-time winningest coach.

“Ashley Tipton went off on us last year,” University of Tennessee Lady Vol head coach Pat Summitt said of Tipton, former Farragut Lady Admiral now a sophomore starting guard for Carson Newman College, after a 104-49 UT victory Wednesday, Nov. 1, at Thompson-Boling Arena.


Scoring 16 points against the Lady Vols last season at the arena as a C-N freshman, Tipton was held to four this time. “I thought we did a little bit better job against her tonight,” Summitt said.

Tipton responded, “That’s absolutely a compliment. At the same time it’s frustrating ’cause you don’t want to come out and only score four points.”

Meanwhile, Catelyn Dake began her college basketball career at the place she considered a shrine while growing up a huge Tennessee Lady Vols fan. “Of course I was, I can’t believe I’m playing the Lady Vols,” said Dake, also a former Farragut Lady Admiral and Tipton’s teammate as a C-N freshman who played about ninw minutes in Thompson-Boling and scored four points.

“I used to be a ‘Pat’s Pal,’” Dake added in reference to “high-fiving” Lady Vol players in a group of children who greeted UT players as they entered the court

As a Lady Vol opponent, “I was a little nervous, but I was really excited to get out there,” Dake said. “It’s a great experience to play the Lady Vols.”
