Quoting Coach John Williamson: "Every tournament has a good field and this is certainly no exception. There are only 12 teams here as compared to some with twice as many entries but the quality is still abundant with a number of powerful, Top 10 teams. This is an important weekend for Vanderbilt as we are making a final push to earn our way among the eight teams that get invitations to the NCAA Championship in April. We know we have some work to do."
