Vandy in SEC final stretch

With an SEC Eastern Division title safely locked up, No. 1 ranked Vanderbilt's next target is the Southeastern Conference regular season championship. After that there will be more challenges for the guys in Black & Gold as the team eyes a return trip to the city of Omaha. First things first though, Vandy plays Presbyterian on Wednesday night.
