Optional Musical Accompaniment
Well, Vanderbilt made it eleven losses in a row to Tennessee with last night’s 77-68 loss in Knoxville... which was a lot more competitive than we thought it would be. Jerry Stackhouse’s first game against Tennessee saw The Streak end, and since then it’s been seven more losses.
If there was a real takeaway from last night, though, Lee Dort and Noah Shelby both got on the floor in the first half and did good things, and then... got buried again in the second half. No, I don’t get it, either.
Bowling came in second place at the Stormin’ Blue and White Vegas Classic, losing to hated rival McKendree in the final.
Men’s golf promoted Gator Todd to associate head coach, which I bring up mostly to remind everyone that Vanderbilt has a golf coach named Gator Todd.
Subscriber content, but Aria Gerson’s headline seems to imply that the women’s basketball team is in danger of having to cancel the season.
And finally... well... no comment.
