In terms of depth, Vanderbilt may be the thinnest team in the SEC and near the bottom among any BCS conference team. The Dores lost four players last offseason, including Kedren Johnson (suspended from school for year), Kevin Bright (signed to play pro basketball in Germany), Sheldon Jeter (transferred) and A.J. Astroth (transferred).

They’ve got several talented players who can go toe-to-toe with Kentucky’s roster, but their lack of depth often leads to their downfall ,and they shouldn’t be able to hang with the Wildcats for 40 minutes.
