Vanderbilt basketball must move on from a season-ending injury to Liam Robbins during a win over Kentucky.
That quest starts on Senior Night against Mississippi State (20-10, 8-9) on Saturday (7:30 p.m. CT, SEC Network).
The Commodores (17-13, 10-7) will be the No. 6 seed in the SEC Tournament regardless of whether they win or lose after Missouri’s win over Ole Miss.
The Bulldogs will present a challenge with forward Tolu Smith, who is averaging 15.3 points per game. It may be difficult for Vanderbilt to stop Smith without Robbins.
Three players will be honored in the Senior Night ceremony: Jordan Wright, Quentin Millora-Brown and Emmanuel Ansong.
