The Lady Vols are on their way to Louisville, Kentucky, and a Sweet 16 matchup with Maryland on Sunday.

Before the team boarded the bus, Head Coach Holly Warlick, senior Meighan Simmons, junior Isabelle Harrison, and freshman Jordan Reynolds spoke with the media.

The Lady Vols want to win a ninth national championship, and they said they are ready to play.

"I think you said it. We've played some really tough games on the road, and we've played well. We tend to be a little bit more focused, so I think we're battle tested. We've had tough games at home, away from home, and in a tournament setting so I think we've put them through every scenario and situation that they've needed to be in." said Warlick.

"It's kind of nerve-wracking a little bit because you want to get out there and you want to win. I try not to think too far ahead, but I'm excited to play. We've waited too long to get out there on the floor and play. We're really excited. We just have to take one game at a time," said Simmons.

"It's March Madness and anything can happen. There are a lot of upsets that have been going on and everybody is going to give you their best, so we have to understand that and make it a priority for us to come out strong and play a full 40 minutes," said Harrison.

"I'm very excited; you know just to get on the road and just finally playing this Sweet 16. I mean I've been watching this my whole life and just to be finally playing in it, it's just awesome experience I think," said Reynolds.

Sunday's game will be at noon. You can watch on ESPN.
