Vanderbilt Loses Fisher-Davis for the Rest of the Season

A bad season just got a lot worse for Vanderbilt.

Vanderbilt’s second-leading scorer will miss the rest of the season.  Bryce Drew announced senior guard Matthew Fisher-Davis suffered a right shoulder injury against Kentucky that will keep him out of action indefinitely.

Fisher-Davis averages 11.9 points per game for the 7-12 Commodores.  Only Jeff Roberson scores more for with 15.1 points per game.  Fisher-Davis only made 33 percent of his three-pointers this season, but throughout his career he made 269, which is sixth on Vanderbilt’s all-time list.  Unfortunately, his NCAA Tournament flub is probably how we’ll be remembered.

Kentucky will host Vanderbilt one week from tonight at Rupp Arena.

    That’s a shame; his season ended so badly last year when he thought the coach said to foul the Northwestern player…felt bad for him.

      I second that. I’m probably being a bit hypocritical but I hate that fans’ first reaction to mistakes like the one against Northwestern is to going into the, “how could you make such a stupid decision?!”. As if many (any?)of us have ever faced such high pressure situations in front of millions of people and when you’re trying to make decisions on the fly. Let alone doing all of this when for all practical purposes you’re a kid.

      On another note, as a Cats fan I have officially reached the point that when I read or hear the name Vanderbilt, I have to be reminded there’s a school by that name.
