Vanderbilt vs. Miami (Ohio) photo gallery

Saturday the Vanderbilt women walloped Miami (Ohio), 93-50. VandyMania photographer/writer Whitney D. was there with her camera and captured these exclusive shots of the action.

Vanderbilt's game at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, was scheduled as a homecoming game for sophomore point guard Dee Davis. An easy drive from Cincinnati, Oxford turned out to be the quintessential college town, complete with an equestrian complex on the edge of the college campus.

One of the quaint features of Oxford is the signs that seniors at the college put up on their houses. Most of them portray the side of college life that parents would rather not think about (see inset).

Basketball games at Miami University are played at Millett Hall. The women's game on Saturday was the first game of a doubleheader. After the women's game, the MU men played Ball State.

Tip off!

Senior forward Ashley Earley led the team with 25 points and 15 rebounds for her third double double of the season.

Senior guard Abi Ramsey scored 16 points, including three 3-pointers, and had five assists and six steals.

During halftime on the radio broadcast, Charlie Mattos interviewed Miami Athletics Director Brad Bates. Brad was a long-time senior associate athletics director at Vanderbilt before accepting the position at MU.

Dee Davis had a double double, too, with 10 assists to go along with her 18 points.

The girls varsity team from Princeton High school, Dee's alma mater, came to the game wearing black and gold t-shirts spelling out "LET'S GO DEE!" on one side and "VANDERBILT!" on the other. They helped Dee with her free throws . . .

. . . and did the wave when she sank one.

Sophomore post Carla Thomas recorded her first double double of the season with 21 points and 10 rebounds.

Y-M-C-A! Y-M-C-A!

After Vanderbilt's 93-50 victory over the Redhawks, Director of Basketball Operations Kornell Battle, who also hails from Cincinnati, joined the Princeton High School girls team and Dee and her mom for a photo.
