Vanderbilt men's basketball now 1-2 in SEC — just like last year

Remember what a great season we had last year? (Well, when you take away the NCAA tournament opening round game against one of the Crayola colors.)

Right now we're 1-2, coming off a win over Georgia in Nashville and losses in Lexington and Starkville that look milder on paper than they did if you saw the games.

But it's easy to forget that we had a 1-2 SEC record on Jan. 17 of last year. We lost to Kentucky in double overtime in Rupp and then we beat South Carolina in overtime after Dolla tied the game with a buzzer beating coast-to-coast layup and then we got smoked by the Vols in Knoxville.

So it's a wash.

But I do wish we had Andre Walker for the rest of the season.

What happened to Andre Walker?


He tore his ACL at the end of the MTSU game on Nov. 24 and is out for the season.
