In his post, Lindsey includes quotes from head coach John Calipari, who was complimentary of the Commodores during Friday's media session.

"This (Vanderbilt team) reminds me of my UMass teams," Calipari said. "Just a team that five guys, three guys off the bench, they all know what their jobs are, they make shots. They're tough. They're not beating themselves. You're either beating them or they beat you."

"You can't worry about one guy. Every guy that they have can shoot 3s, can bounce the ball, can pass the ball. Everybody is a basketball player, and they're physically tough. You're not going to out-punk them. That isn't happening. None of that stuff is working in this game. They're a veteran team and they're tough."

  1. I feel the need to point out that VU will NEVER be like his UMass teams. We play fair. We keep our banners around here.
