Buzz Peterson super-sized his lineup but he couldn't exorcise the old gray ghosts of Georgetown past, as the Hoyas displayed dogged defense reminiscent of John Thompson's glory days and scored a 70-60 victory over Tennessee (17-12) in the first round of the NIT.

Their horrendous 106-44 beating by the Kentucky Wildcats on Wednesday at Rupp Arena, in which none of their players scored in double digits, was the biggest losing margin for the Vanderbilt Commodores since their 98-29 defeat by Kentucky, February 27, 1947. They now have a record of 10-16 (3-12 in conference play) and are in danger of equalling their worst season's record since 1945-46 (10-17 in 1977-78), and exceeding the eight-game losing streak by which they ended the 2000-01 season.
