With Vanderbilt basketball less than a month away from every day practice beginning, things are gearing up for the Commodores. News and notes from around the program include a practice update, a recap of Jon Rothstein’s chat with Coach Stallings, and how young is this Vanderbilt team in comparison with others in the SEC?
The guys are training with strength and conditioning coach Curtis Turner on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays most weeks.
Jon Rothstein’s chat with Coach Stallings
On Vanderbilt itself: "Last year's team was under a microscope. This years team is under the radar. They’re embracing that."
On the freshman: "Were taking the box of chocolates approach. You never know what you’re going to get."
On rebuilding: "I’ve been through it before. We don’t have anybody whose going to be used to the role they have this year."
On Dai-Jon Parker: "He’s got incredible athleticism. He has the makings of a guy who could be a lock down defender."
On Rod Odom: "Right now he looks like he’s going to be our go to guy. He’s our leading returning scorer."
On Shelby Moats: "He’s gotten a lot better as an undersized 5. He can stretch the floor."
On Josh Henderson: "If we can keep him healthy, he'll give us a guy who can score."
On Kedren Johnson: "He has an aggressive mentality. He enjoys bringing fight back to the game."
On Kyle Fuller: "His shooting has really, really improved. He could be on the floor in end of game situations"
