Vanderbilt Boasts Double-Digit TV Appearances

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Vanderbilt men's basketball team will play at least 10 games on television during the 2002-03 season.

This announcement comes as part of the SEC's release of its complete television schedule for the coming season.

The Commodores will play three non-conference games and four home games on TV. They make their first televised appearance December 1 against Connecticut (SEC-TV) and then follow that up with TV games December 9 at Indiana (ESPN2) and December 30 at Notre Dame (SEC-TV).

Vanderbilt has six TV games during the SEC regular season with the appearances coming in three groups of two. The Commodores play in back-to-back home TV games January 11 against Alabama (SEC-TV) and then a Tuesday night ESPN nationally-televised game January 14 against Kentucky.

The second pair of TV games comes January 22 at Florida (JP) and January 29 against Georgia (JP). Vanderbilt's final two TV games of the conference's regular season are March 1 at South Carolina (SEC-TV) and March 8 against Tennessee (JP). The Commodores then will play all SEC Tournament games on television (JP/CBS).

Along with the release of the TV schedule, Vanderbilt has announced that the tentative starting time for all non-TV home games will be 7 p.m.
