VANDERBILT BASKETBALL THREE KEYS: SOUTH CAROLINA

The Commodores improved their record to 1-1 in SEC play with a gutsy 76-75 over a very good Alabama side on Tuesday night. The ‘Dores survived a scare as an Alabama half-court heave at the buzzer would have changed the outcome of the game, but now Vandy can move on to their clash at South […]
