RECORD: 12-3, 1-1 SEC
CURRENT STREAK: Lost one

CHALLENGING START
The Commodores opened their SEC schedule last week with back-to-back games against ranked opponents. Vanderbilt kicked off the week with an upset, and stretched its winning streak to nine games, by downing No. 19/18 Georgia, 66-58, on Thursday at Memorial Gym. The Commodores then went on the road and fell to No. 13/12 South Carolina, 76-66, in Columbia.

In the win over Georgia, Jasmine Lister finished with 24 points, and fueled a second-half comeback as the Commodores rallied from a seven-point deficit.

In the loss to South Carolina, the Gamecocks held off Vanderbilt's second-half comeback bid. Foggie finished with 16 points, Lister added 13, Jasmine Jenkins had 12 and Kylee Smith had 11.

UP NEXT: ANOTHER ROAD TRIP
The Commodores play their second straight road game Thursday, traveling to Auburn, Ala., to face the Tigers (10-4, 1-0).

Auburn opened its SEC slate with an 82-74 win over Miss. State on Sunday. Vanderbilt is 3-2 on the road this season, with wins over Hartford, James Madison and UAB. The losses have come at Duke and South Carolina.

NEXT HOME GAME: LADY VOLS COME CALLING
Vanderbilt returns to Memorial Gym on Jan. 12 to host rival Tennessee at 4 p.m. in an SEC contest that will be televised by ESPN.

It will be Vanderbilt's first game on ESPN since appearing on ESPN's College Gameday on Jan. 15, 2011 in Knoxville.

PROMOTIONS
The game against Tennessee will feature several promotions and activities, including the season debut of Kids' Zone -- a designated play area for children that will include inflatables, cotton candy and more.

The game will also feature a halftime performance by the popular Russian Bar Tour.
Fans can also look for the T-shirt toss, gold shaker give-away and can get their Frequent-Fan card punched. After the game, the Vanderbilt players will throw miniature basketballs into the stands.

DAHLMAN REMAINS SIDELINED
Vanderbilt is still without the services of freshman guard Rebekah Dahlman, who is out indefinitely after undergoing two procedures to dissolve a blood clot last month.

Dahlman was in the starting lineup for each of Vanderbilt's first nine games and was leading the SEC in 3-point percentage before being sidelined.
