Lady Vols Warlick ‘Everything’s fine’ after chat with DeShields’ dad

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Tennessee’s Holly Warlick says she has spoken with the father of guard Diamond DeShields and they’ve smoothed things over after he criticized the coach on social media.

Delino DeShields made several tweets Monday during the 24th-ranked Lady Vols’ 62-56 loss to No. 3 South Carolina questioning why his daughter wasn’t playing more. He tweeted that Warlick was “trying to beat the best without her best players on the court.”

On Tuesday, he apologized on Twitter. Most of the tweets have been removed.

Warlick said Wednesday that “everything’s fine.” She added, “I think it’s just a parent wanting his daughter to just do everything and be everything. I get that.”

Attempts to reach Delino DeShields weren’t successful.

Tennessee (15-10, 6-6 SEC) hosts Ole Miss (10-15, 2-10) on Thursday.
