The Vanderbilt Commodores are ready to tip off their 2012-2013 college basketball season. The Commodores had a successful season last year, making it to the NCAA Tournament for the 13th time since the programs inception. Gold Coast Tickets does not want you to miss out on the action as the Vanderbilt Commodores try to make the NCAA Tournament. Grab the best seats in the house at the Memorial Gymnasium, or follow your Commodores on the road right here at Gold Coast Tickets.
The Commodores finished 25-11 and earned a #5 seed in the tournament. They beat a very good Harvard team in the Round of 64, but lost to a defensive minded Wisconsin Badger team in the Round of 32. The Commodores were led by star player John Jenkins, who was selected by the Atlanta Hawks in the 2012 NBA Draft.
Although the Commodores do not have any recruits coming in off of the Rivals Top 150, they are always tough competitors in the SEC. The Commodores struggle on the defensive side of the ball year in and year out. They fail to stop late game runs, but are always among the best teams in the nation of the offensive end.
This past year the Commodores ranked 59th in the nation in points per game with 73 and 68th in team field goal percentage, shooting 46%. It is going to be a tough next season without Jenkins, who averaged 20 points in the 2011-2012 season, but head coach Kevin Stallings is confident with the talent he has. The Commodores have found their way into the NCAA Tournament for the past three years, but the programs best year in recent history came in 2007 when they made it to the Sweet 16. The Commodores play their home games at the beautiful Memorial Gymnasium in Nashville, Tennessee.
