Tide Women Host Vandy Thursday
The Crimson Tide is looking to get back on track as Alabama remains winless in the Southeastern Conference having started 0-3 against league foes.
"We really need to start shooting the ball better," Alabama Head Coach Wendell Hudson said. "We have played three tough games thus far. The key for us is getting back to playing with more confidence."
Alabama and Vanderbilt will meet for the 38th time on Thursday. The Commodores lead the all-time series 26-11 and have won the last nine contests. The Tide's last victory against Vanderbilt came on Feb. 8, 2004, by a score of 81-68 in Tuscaloosa.
Senior Tierney Jenkins continues to lead Alabama, as well as the SEC, in both scoring and rebounding despite struggling offensively the last two games. She averages 17.4 points per game and 10.9 rebounds per contest and has collected 11 double-doubles this season. Last time out, the Tide was led by freshman Kaneisha Horn, who had a team-high 13 points and eight rebounds at LSU.
Vanderbilt enters Thursday's contest on a two-game winning streak having recently beaten Mississippi State and Auburn at home. The Commodores have not been as efficient on the road this season posting a 1-5 record outside of Nashville. Senior Hannah Tuomi leads five Vanderbilt scorers in double figure scoring with 14.4 points per game. She is also the Commodores leader in rebounds with 6.5 boards per game. Fellow senior Jence Rhoads is responsible for the majority of Vanderbilt's assists with 4.6 per contest.
Single-game women's basketball tickets are on sale at the cost of $5 for adults and $3 for youth 18 and under.
