UPDATE ON THE DORES
RECORD: 17-8, 6-6 SEC
CURRENT STREAK: Lost three
NEXT GAME: at Arkansas, Thursday, 8 p.m.
LOOKING TO REGAIN MOMENTUM
The Commodores enter this week looking to reverse their direction. They have lost three straight games -- their longest losing streak of the season -- and have posted a 1-5 since since Jan. 25.
The tough stretch has included a series of hard-luck losses, with four of the five defeats being decided in the final minute.
UP NEXT: ON THE ROAD AGAIN
The Commodores will play their second straight road game Thursday night when they travel to Arkansas.
Vanderbilt, which suffered a last-second loss to Miss. State in Starkville on Sunday, has posted a 2-4 record in SEC road games. The wins have come against Auburn and Ole Miss; the losses have come to South Carolina, Missouri, Tennessee and Miss. State.
Arkansas owns a 13-3 record at home this season, including a 3-3 mark in SEC games.
FOGGIE SETS A NEW STANDARD
Vanderbilt senior Christina Foggie became the program's all-time leader in 3-pointers on Sunday against Miss. State.
Foggie entered the game tied with former VU standout Merideth Marsh atop the list with 256 three-pointers in her career.
Foggie then moved into the top spot by herself when she hit a 3-pointer from the left corner with 4:37 left in the first half.
Foggie went on to finish 3-of-5 from 3-point range and scored a team-high 15 points in the loss.
NEXT HOME GAME: vs. Alabama, Sunday, Feb. 23, 3 p.m.
Vanderbilt returns home this weekend to open a two-game a homestand. The Commodores host Alabama on Sunday at 3 p.m. and then host Florida in their regular-season home finale on Thursday, Feb. 27, at 7 p.m.
The game against Florida is Senior Day at Memorial Gym, and the Commodores will salute four-year stars Christina Foggie and Jasmine Lister.
Prior to the Alabama game on Feb. 23, fans can visit the Kids' Zone -- a designated play area for children that includes inflatables, cotton candy, face tattoos and more. The Kids' Zone is open from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m.
Also, the first 200 fans to report to the Southeast entrance marketing table will receive a women's basketball lanyard.
During the game, special guest DJ DU will be mixing it up, and fans can watch for the T-shirt toss, gold-shaker give-away and can get their Frequent-Fan card punched.
