Vanderbilt’s cinderella run ends

Vanderbilt’s work at the SEC tournament is now officially done. The Commodores may have popped the bubbles of Arkansas (eh, bubble might have been a push) and Kentucky along the way, but Kevin Stallings and company’s cinderella run as the #10 seed ended in the semi-finals this afternoon. Vanderbilt fell to Ole Miss and the fighting Marshall Hendersons by a final score of 64-52.  Henderson led all scores with 23 points. Vanderbilt’s hot shooting cooled off. The Commodores finished 6-30 from behind the arc.

Ole Miss will now move on to the SEC tournament finals to face the top-seeded Florida Gators. Out of all of the SEC bubble teams competing this weekend, the Rebels have unfortunately come out with the best results. Some analysts have predicted that by virtue of making the finals, the Rebels have done enough to warrant a bid.

According to Jerry Tipton, the SEC tournament semi-finals drew 14,574 (but we all know how accurately Jerry measures a crowd). The crowd marks the third-smallest since the league’s expansion in 1992. 

If you see a scalper on the streets of Nashville, go ahead and hug them. No one was hit harder by the Kentucky loss yesterday than those guys. Reject them, but then hug them.

    This team’s fate was sealed when Archie winked.

    agreed 3. that one wink epitomized the undeserving sense of entitlement and arrogance that everyone on this team has. lazy, pathetic, and will definitely fail in the NBA. LEAVE NOW

    This is just further evidence of how abysmal UK’s performance was yesterday, and how wildly inconsistent the team was all year. They just never figured out how to play with the constant intensity and focus you need to take an opponents best shot every single game. And the complete and total lack of leadership among the players is IMO the central reason. I only hope that yesterday’s embarrassing meltdown will not hurt our chances with Julius Randle as Kansas continues to roll. I hate to say it, but after this year I can see why he might think twice. I hope he doesn’t, and that next year we can put this behind us and restore the proper order in the SEC.

    #7-Why would yesterday’s loss sway Randle toward Kansas? Just not seeing what the loss has to do with it.

    I’ve decided that Joe Lunardi has magical powers. After March Madness, I’m selling all my possessions to follow Joe. After Sunday the new bracketology year begins. So tomorrow is in fact New Year’s Eve on the Lunardi calendarology where UK is the top seed according to Joe. Joe is all we need.

    People seem to think that if you can dunk the ball, you are talented. Just because you can jump high, you are talented. True basketball players know how to play the game of basketball. They know how to compete, they know how to block out, they know how to find the open team mate, they know how to get down in a defensive stance and slide their feet and keep their man in front of them, they know how to penetrate and make the right play, they know how and when to switch with another team mate on defense, they can feel the double team coming fast enough to kick the ball back to the open man, they know how to deny the ball on defense, they can anticipate a play before it ever happens, they know when to push the ball and when it needs to be walked up the floor, they know how to throw an outlet pass and fill the lane on a fast break, they know how to dribble the ball with both hands equally, they know how the proper form to shoot the ball. Being a basketball player is much more than being able to dunk a basketball or being able to run really fast or jump really high.We had guys like that, they could run, they could jump and they could dunk, they just didn’t know how to play basketball.

    9, I don’t know, just asking the question/expressing the concern. It probably doesn’t matter; but I don’t think it is too hard to see how it could. This year’s team had pretty poor chemistry, struggled to play together and the coaching staff seemed to be at a loss to try to right the ship all year. Meanwhile, Kansas is pretty much right where they were last year. But no question we have by far the best recruiting class and Randle makes it the greatest ever…and very good chance we steamroll college basketball next year. My prediction is that with Randle we will be able to score at will at every single position, just a lethally effective and efficient offensive team.

    Screw the scalpers. They were still trying to get full ticket price after the game was on for 8 minutes so we went in a bar and watched. Im tired of scalpers making it impossible to get reasonable tickets. I hope theymget hit so hard they disappear altogether. After the game i saw a guy trying to sell the rest of his tickets. He was down to one dollar for two seats and no one was taking him up. Then BBN disappeared from Nashville and cost the city a ton of money. Maybbe they need to hold more special events for BBN to encourage us to hang around. No other fan base shows up and spends the money we do. Maybe a show of thank you would be nice once in a while.

    13, with inductive inferences (especially phrased like that one) it is obvious that you were (or are) hitting the bong pretty hard during your freshman critical thinking class. And 14, maybe meth or something along those lines.
