HOOVER, Ala. (AP) – Holly Warlick was in the hot seat at Southeastern Conference media day.

Warlick is approaching her first season as the successor to iconic Tennessee women's basketball coach Pat Summitt. Her first question at the podium Thursday was if she had the worst job in America.

The longtime Lady Vols assistant answered: No way.

Warlick says she loves following Summitt on the bench for the powerhouse program.

She does have to replace every starter from a team that advanced to the second round of the NCAA tournament, including All-American Shekinna Stricklen.

The Lady Vols are picked to finish fourth in the SEC by league media, who picked Kentucky to repeat.

The Wildcats return SEC player of the year A'dia Mathies and freshman of the year Bria Goss.
