Vanderbilt's Last Time Out
Florida ended a three-game Commodore winning streak Wednesday night in the O’Connell Center with a 66-40 win over Vanderbilt. Commodore guard Kedren Johnson led Vanderbilt with 15 points.
'Dores Three-Point Streak Still Intact
Vanderbilt has made a 3-pointer in 861 consecutive games, a streak which began at the inception of the 3-point line in 1986-87.

Vanderbilt, UNLV and Princeton are the only three schools in college basketball to have made at least one 3-pointer in every game played since the 3-point line was implemented.

Of the 10 league losses this season, one has gone to overtime (Ole Miss), two were by four points (Alabama, led by 11 with seven minutes to go, at Kentucky), one was by two points (Kentucky at home), and a pair of games by one point (at Tennessee, at LSU).
Regular Season Finales
Under head coach Kevin Stallings, the Commodores are 6-7 in regular season finales at Memorial Gym.
The Commodores are only surrendering 59.9 points per game, which marks Vanderbilt’s best scoring defensive effort since 1950-51 (60.5 ppg).
