NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – After a seven-game losing streak, the Vanderbilt Commodores know what it’s like to struggle this year.
But that streak is over, and after winning back-to-back games, they have some confidence headed into their Wednesday showdown with Tennessee.
For the first time in SEC play, the Dores will face a team more desperate for a win then they are.
Tennessee has lost four of their last five games, and it’s safe to say that their confidence is a bit shaken.
Even though the Vols are struggling, it’s a rivalry game and Vanderbilt isn’t expecting anything but a closely contested game.
Kevin Stallings said, “I don’t look at it as though we’re playing a Tennessee team that’s struggling or not playing well. I see a team that’s competing hard with everyone, and when they do get beat, they’re right in the game to the very end, so like I said, I just expect it to be a har- fought game on both sides.”
The Commodores and Volunteers tip-off at 8 p.m. Wednesday night at Memorial Gym.
