WBB SEC Tournament Bracket
Vanderbilt lost their chance at a first-round bye in the upcoming SEC Women's Basketball Tournament after dropping a heartbreaking contest to South Carolina on Senior Day at Memorial Gym on Sunday.
The Commodores (20-9, 9-7 SEC) enter the tourney as a fifth seed, which means they need to win four consecutive games to defend their conference title from a year ago.
VU opens with 12th-seeded Arkansas on Thursday at 5:30 p.m. CT. Fourth-seeded LSU awaits the winner in the quarterfinals on Friday.
One positive... The four seniors should remember their last trip to Duluth, Ga. Each logged minutes as freshmen during the Commodores' championship run in 2007.
Can this group make it three titles in four years?
“For any team, whether it’s the No. 1 team or the worst team, it’s mental and physical toughness to win four games in four days," Merideth Marsh told the media. "Once again, it’s a challenge and we’re up for it. I hope we can look at this game as our season is not over and it depends on how we’re going to end the season. It’s up to us and no one can take it from us unless we let them. We have the heart to do it, so I’m excited about it.”
