Stand up and shout

Recognize these guys?

Chris DeGeorge, Adam Smotherman, T.J. Greenstone, Larry Smith and Joel Caldwell had an up-close view of the women’s basketball team’s impressive 74-58 victory over Tennessee Sunday afternoon at Memorial Gym.

The football players arrived over thirty minutes prior to tip-off to secure their seats in the front row of the student section. It was the perfect location to give the Commodores an extra boost of vocal support against their in-state rivals.

“We're real good friends with the team,” Greenstone said, "and it’s just a lot of fun to come out here and watch them play. They deserve our support.”

Student-athletes from several other Vanderbilt sports were also in attendance to cheer on their peers, a true sign of the camaraderie between teams throughout the athletic year.

“We all go to class and play our respective sports,” Greenstone added. “Everyone is just rooting for each other. We're all in it together.”

One side note -- It’s no surprise that Greenstone’s been coming to the women’s basketball games regularly since he was a true freshman in the fall of 2007. His mother, Mary Beth, played basketball at Edinboro University and his older sister, Mindy, is a senior forward for North Greenville (S.C.) University.
