Not to be outdone was Thomas, who put up a 10 of her own on the floor. The reigning SEC Specialist of the Week got plenty of elevation while maintaining grace and control, finishing it off with her signature butterfly move.
It was the 22nd perfect 10 of her career, moving her into fourth place all-time in NCAA history, and just the first 10 on the floor this season for her, the 11th of her career.
