Close shave

by Barca Blog - You might remember when the 2006-07 Vanderbilt men's basketball team fell to 1-3 after a disappointing home loss to Furman. That very next game, VU rebounded with a thrilling 98-93 overtime win over Toledo, which some consider the turning point to the Commodores' Elite Eight run (as I like to call it) to New Jersey.

Well, according to the Associated Press and the Tennessean, federal officials are looking into that game in connection with a point-shaving scandal led by a couple of Toledo players on that squad.

I won't get into all of the specifics, but you can read about it in these two articles:

Game film has few clues
