Women’s basketball discontinues season

I’m sure the SEC will love this.

NCAA Womens Basketball: Tennessee at Vanderbilt Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

This is fine.

On Sunday, Vanderbilt took Kentucky down to the wire in an 80-73 loss; on Monday, they called it a season. Granted, both the tweet and the article go out of their way to insist that this decision was driven by the student-athletes on the team... and granted, there were seven of them who played on Sunday afternoon.

On the other hand, this is coming on the heels of football season ending prematurely due in large part to opt-outs. That specifically hasn’t been a problem for the men’s basketball team, though they have lost a few games, but we kind of do have to ask why Vanderbilt is getting hit harder with opt-outs than basically anyone else.
