KNOXVILLE, Tenn. –  As Tennessee begins a new era in women’s basketball, perhaps it’s only fitting that a freshman is leading the way. The emergence of freshman forward Bashaara Graves has helped the 16th-ranked Lady Vols win five consecutive games in Holly Warlick’s debut season as coach. Graves headed into the weekend as the Southeastern Conference’s third-leading scorer (15. 8) and sixth-leading rebounder (7.8). No other freshman ranked among the conference’s top 18 scorers or top 14 rebounders. Graves’ rapid rise hasn’t surprised anyone at Tennessee. Her coaches and teammates knew all along she’d be a major factor. Even Graves herself believed she could contribute right away. She remembered what Warlick told each of the freshmen before the season. “She basically told us that we don’t have time to be freshmen, which is understandable because we’re a younger team,” Graves said. “Being freshmen, we don’t have that option.
