article imageVanderbilt shoots down #10 Alabama 94-73: Auburn takes out No. 22 Tennessee 83-80

By Catfan81     Jan 18, 2007 in Sports
A week after upsetting Tennessee in Nashville the Commodores get another one.
Shan Foster scored 27 points and the Vanderbilt Commodores shot down the No. 10 Crimson Tide tonight in Nashville.
Vandy hit a season high 15- 3 pointers and shot a blistering 58% from the field for the game.
"Vandy (12-6, 2-2 Southeastern Conference) never let Alabama (14-3, 1-2) get close after the opening minutes in handing the Tide a ninth straight loss in Nashville. Alabama hasn't won in Memorial Gym since 1990 under coach Wimp Sanderson."
"Vanderbilt, which has beaten three straight ranked teams including a Dec. 9 win over then-No. 25 Georgia Tech, needed this victory badly. The Commodores had lost two road games to start SEC play, and three of their next four are on the road at No. 25 Kentucky, No. 16 LSU and top-ranked Florida."
That will all end this Saturday when the No.25 Kentucky Wildcats riding an 11 game winning streak take on the 'Dores in Rupp Arena.
Auburn 83 No.22 Tennessee 80
"Quan Prowell made four free throws in the final 22 seconds -- including two following a costly technical foul against Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl -- and the Tigers rallied from a 14-point deficit over the final 10 minutes for an 83-80 victory on Wednesday night."
Auburn (12-7, 2-2) used an 18-0 run to beat their first Top 25 opponent in 15 games. Frank Tolbert led the Tigers with 24 points.
The Volunteers (13-5, 1-2) have now lost 3 games in a row to Ohio State, Vandy and now Auburn.
Chris Lofton led the Vols with 22 points.
Auburn and Vandy both get big wins to keep their NCAA hopes alive.
