Basketball: Vanderbilt Commodores 102, Ole Miss Rebels 76 -- Postgame Report

New, 12 comments

The Vanderbilt Commodores defeated the Mississippi Rebels 102-76 last night. There's not much to say about the game: Vanderbilt's offensive efficiency was 1.46 points per possession. Effective field goal percentage was 75%. Jeffery Taylor was otherworldly. John Jenkins scored 26 points on five field goals. The Commodore team that played last night wins 100% of the games it plays, no matter the opponent. Now it's about mastering that rage and playing with that anger and determination from now until there are no more opponents. The line has been drawn. Saddle up. Ride the bull.
