Head Coach Melanie Balcomb and the Commodore women's basketball team will open SEC play at home when they host the Bulldogs of Mississippi State on Thursday at 7 p.m. in Memorial Gym. In addition to the exciting action on the court, fans will be treated to a special halftime performance by the world famous Russian Bar Trio.
The Russian Bar Trio combines their aerial skills with great acrobatics and a little bit of soul and funk. The team is made up of two men bracing a Russian bar and between them is a nimble acrobat mounting the slim platform and performing a series of mid-air back flips, breathtaking stunts, propelling higher and higher with every cheer of the crowd. They made their mark as contestants on "America's Got Talent" and have been performing across the globe ever since!
Tickets to watch the Commodores face the Bulldogs and experience the Russian Bar Trio are only $10 and can be ordered by calling the Vanderbilt Ticket Office at 615-322-GOLD or online.
