WBB: #10 'Dores Travel to Ole Miss Sunday

Jan. 6, 2007


The Commodores have begun the season by winning 14 of their first 15 games on three occasions (2006-07, 1995-96, and 1992-93). Vanderbilt's best-ever start came during the 1992-93 season. The 'Dores opened that year with 17 straight victories and would eventually advance to the NCAA Final Four.

OXFORD, Miss. -- The No. 11/10 Vanderbilt women's basketball team plays its first Southeastern Conference road game of the season this Sunday, Jan.7, at Ole Miss. The game will be televised by FSN South and is scheduled to tipoff at 1:30 p.m. CT.

Vanderbilt (14-1, 1-0 SEC) defeated Arkansas, 98-61, in its conference opener Thursday to equal the school's second-best start. A win over the Lady Rebels would put the Commodores just seven games away from matching the 22-1 record that the 1992-93 team jumped out to on its way to the NCAA Final Four.

Senior leadership has been a big reason for Vanderbilt's success this season. Carla Thomas posted a double-double against Arkansas, with 12 points and 14 rebounds, and currently ranks third in the conference in scoring.

Dee Davis leads the league in assists, while Caroline Williams is one of the most-feared shooters in the country.

Vanderbilt holds a 21-12 all-time advantage over Ole Miss, but has lost nine of 14 meetings in Oxford -- including the team's last trip to C.M. "Tad" Smith Coliseum in 2005.
