A transcript of the Q&A follows, as acoustics in the player lounge were not the best. Read it here, and see Vicki Baugh in the video.
InsideTennessee: With your injury you have only been able to practice on a limited basis. How has your knee responded being back on the court?
Vicki Baugh: Some days I can make it through an entire practice. Other days I will feel some pain and have to sit out for part of practice.
InsideTennessee: What are your goals this season? Where do you want to be midway through and where do you want to be at the season's finish?
Baugh: I first want to focus on getting healthy and being there for my team. By the end of the season, of course we want a championship. As far as for myself, I want to regain complete confidence in my knee and be back to 100 percent.
InsideTennessee: This isn't the first knee injury you've had in the past year. How have you handled two major surgeries on your knee?
Baugh: The way I look at it is a lot of people have it a lot worse, and I don't want to complain about a knee injury. I feel that every injury makes you stronger and I have no choice but to just work through it. I can either think negatively or I can think positively, and I'm choosing to look at it positively.
InsideTennessee: When you're on the court, how much are you thinking about your knee?
Baugh: There will occasionally be some twists, turns, and falls that definitely make me think about my injury, but I just try to play through the pain as much as I can.
InsideTennessee: Back in March, you guys unfortunately lost in the first round to Ball State. How do you think it has affected the team?
Baugh: It affected us, but we have learned from our mistakes and it will not happen again.
InsideTennessee: Do you think it is pushing you guys even harder this season?
InsideTennessee: How do you think you can help the team this season?
Baugh: I can definitely be a great rebounder, offensive threat and defensive threat. We all have great components to bring to the team, but I feel like I can be a lot of help with rebounding.
InsideTennessee: Are you looking forward to a healthy Kelley Cain this season and do you think you all will present a very formidable post combination?
Baugh: I'm really excited about her being back and I think we will definitely do well with the high-low post combination. We obviously haven't had a chance to run it together in games, but it's something I'm really looking forward to doing.
InsideTennessee: What are you doing as far as recovery goes on a daily basis?
Baugh: I go to rehab on a daily basis, and I make sure I get treatment every day. I practice as much as possible and I lift weights three times a week. I'm always doing something, but I rest my knee one day a week.
