Vandy trailed all game often by 10+, but tied it at 46 with 8 seconds. AZ seems to have gotten a buzzer beater to win.

Vandy was down 11-7 at end of first quarter. They didn’t get back within 5 until there were 4 minutes left.

AZ sounding like the VA men’s team — good defense but bad offense. And if their offense is particularly bad, anyone can hang with them.

Vandy did not have great stats — 26 turnovers, 36% shooting, but they did out rebound.

Ugh krazy shot for the win
And Pellington is left-handed, to boot.

(This game was shown on ESPN3 and the replay is available if anyone wants to watch it: Vanderbilt vs. #11 Arizona (Game #2) (W Basketball) | Watch ESPN)

This was what I wrote on the weekly preview thread:

Vanderbilt loses a heartbreaker to Arizona. Pellington scored a rather difficult layup with her off-hand as time expired. Vandy played from behind the entire game, clawed their way back with great defense, and missed multiple shots that would've given them a 1-pont lead. Vandy finally managed to tie the game with 7 seconds left but then couldn't get the stop to send it to OT.

Still, pretty amazing they were able to stay with a top-10 team like that. They had Arizona visibly frustrated with their excellent defense. Shea's squad has shown tremendous improvement in just a few weeks.

Holy smokes!! Coach Shea and her Vanderbilt program played one heck of a game! Held Arizona to 10 points that that 4th quarter, 19-10. Props to Coach Shea and her Vanderbilt program. Great game.

A great or near great coach uses what she has. Apparently, Shea used her teams rebounding. Also very good team, and this happened to Uconn in the past, are behind until the last of the last quarter then pull up close or win. I'm proud of Shea and Vandy. Thanks Vowel guy--good posting.

Chinese proverb ( really):
“ A journey of ten thousand steps begins with the first one”.
Coach Shea driving through team bus in the right direction.
Couldn’t be happier for her.

I saw bits and snatches of VU against TN Tech. Vanderbilt looked like a well-coached defensive team. Holding a top 10 team to less than 50 seems like a good performance to me, win or lose.
It's a confidence building going into December, and then into conference schedule.... Knowing that you are almost there....

I watched the VU/DePaul game today. VU started out gangbusters and was up 17 at one point in the first quarter. It was kind of deja-vuish though because as the game wore on, Vandy wore out. The much more experienced DePaul squad hung around, Bruno made some adjustments, and DePaul won going away. VU does have three pretty good freshman and two 4-star recruits coming in next year, including a 6'4" player. It'd be great if Shea could pick up a grad transfer with some size for next year.

Meantime, Bruno's got a stud freshman, Aneesah Morrow. Aneesah is listed at 6'1" but plays bigger. She and Sonya Morris combined for 64. Morris dropped a career-high 36. Put on a shooting clinic. I boldly predict that DePaul will return to the big dance.
