54.5 percent field goal percentage. Vanderbilt advanced to
the NCAA Regional Final game for the fourth time and lost
to eventual national champion Notre Dame. Anderson led the
nation in field goal percentage with a 72.3 percentage, just
.1 percent off the NCAA record. The Commodores claimed a runnerup
finish in the SEC Tournament after defeating LSU, and #1 Tennessee
and falling to #4 Georgia in the finals.
The O'Charley's Dinner of Champions was created
by the Nashville Sports Council in 1999 as a way to salute
amateur and professional sports in Middle Tennessee.
