(On the road with the women's basketball team in Albuquerque for the NCAA Tournament)
by Barca Blog - Visit VUcommodores.com to watch Charlie Mattos' pregame interview with senior Jennifer Risper.
Coming off wins over Georgia, LSU and Auburn to win the SEC Tournament title two weeks ago, the Commodores (24-8) are playing their best ball of the season. Risper talked about some of the bumps in the road during the regular season and how the team responded to the adversity.
"You can have those lowest of lows, but if you don't learn from them, then you won't even get to the high points. We did a really good job of learning from all those losses and we're still getting better which is something that a lot of teams don't have at the end of the year."
Vanderbilt will open NCAA Tournament play tonight against No. 13 seed Western Carolina at 7 p.m. CT on ESPN2. And make sure you follow VandyWBB on Twitter to get updates on your mobile phone.
