LAHAINA, Hawaii (AP) For 2 1-2 games Vanderbilt never trailed in the Maui Jim Maui Invitational. Then No. 5 Kansas put the Commodores on the short end of the score for the final 20 minutes and won the tournament for a second time.
"We're disappointed in how we played the second half, particularly defensively," Vanderbilt coach Kevin Stallings said after the 70-63 loss to the Jayhawks in the title game. "And, again, they're fast and quick and shoot the ball awfully well."
That sounds like the Commodores for most of their visit to the 50th state.
