@Jon Rothstein - Vanderbilt coach Kevin Stallings coming up at 1 ET with me + Bruce Pearl on @SiriusXMCollege Channel 91....

@Jon Rothstein -  Kevin Stallings on getting Festus Ezeli back "We're instantly better but he hasn't even scratched the surface yet."

@Jon Rothstein - Stallings on what Ezeli does for Vanderbilt's perimeter "It puts pressure on the interior of the defense bc you can't extend out as much."

@Jon Rothstein - Stallings on Vanderbilt's non-conference schedule "It's already benefited us. We feel much better about our chances on the road now."

@ Jon Rothstein - Stallings on Jeffery Taylor "His approach has gotten much better. I've told him good is not the enemy of great. He's had a terrific year."

@Jon Rothstein - Stallings on Taylor cont'd "I know I have one of the better small forwards in the country. He's shooting it better + he can really defend."

@Jon Rothstein - Stallings on Dai-Jon Parker "He's gotten to the point where he's one of the best five defenders on our team. He's an elite athlete."

@Jon Rothstein - Stallings on Parker cont'd "His instincts take him where he's supposed to be. He has elite athleticism. There aren't many guys faster."

@Jon Rothstein - Stallings on Vanderbilt "We're excited to see where we go from here. I like our team and where we headed."
