Vanderbilt Defeats Georgia 73-66

It was a strong response after the wake-up call that was the South Carolina fiasco. Jenkins and Ezeli notched 18 apiece (with 10 boards for Festivus) while Jeff Taylor added 15, two of which came on an absolutely disgusting one-handed tomahawk slam off an inbound alley-oop from Fuller. The dunk became the #1 play of the day on SportsCenter, highlighting a performance that should have (but alas, did not) put Vanderbilt in a tie for first place in the SEC, boasting the conference's best record.

The Commodores (12-3, 1-1) face Tennessee (10-6, 0-2) on Saturday in Thompson-Boling Arena. ESPN Gameday will be on hand as Vanderbilt gets a serious challenge from one of the most dangerous, talented, and unpredictable teams in the country.
