Dores push through rough stretch

Vanderbilt (21-10, 5-6 Southeastern Conference) will not have as many victories or All-Americans as it did a year ago when it went 46-10 and won the SEC regular season and tournament titles, nor will it finish as high in the rankings.

But, in a sport that depends so much on being hot at the right time, it will still have a chance to accomplish the only goal that matters - getting to Omaha - as long as it continues to get better. Winning midweek games over Western Kentucky and Austin Peay was certainly a good start.

Make sure to check out my column on about Vandy's ability to stay focused on the big picture, even during a losing streak.
