The Vanderbilt Commodores are aching and hurting. They also are learning how to quit letting games get away from them at the end.
John Jenkins led five Commodores in double figures with 20 points, and Vanderbilt beat Ole Miss 84-74 Wednesday night to send the Rebels to their worst start in Southeastern Conference play since 2000.Four of the five starters played at least 30 minutes with Andre Walker out another game with a sprained ankle and Steve Tchiengang limited with his own sore ankle.
Then Festus Ezeli aggravated his left knee blocking a shot early in a game the Commodores (13-4, 2-2) needed on their home court after blowing big leads in dropping their first two SEC road games. (January 20, 2011, Page 7)
