    I have been trying to locate a full roster of the Vanderbilt basketball team during time that I became a follower and fan of Vanderbilt basketball. Tommy Hagan was one of the best of all time, and of course this is the period that Coach Skinner brought Perry Wallace to the university.

    If any of you have access to a roster...name, ht. weight, hometown I would really appreciate you sharing. I have spent a lot of time looking online for old media guides or game programs and went on the athletics website and could not come up with what I am looking for.

    Appreciate it in advance.

    Have you read/seen the book Strong Inside about Perry Wallace? It has some good info about that time period during VU basketball. I recall seeing some pictures of the teams you are talking about. You might could check the back of the book and see what sources the author used. Im sure he used some old game rosters/programs. Hope this helps!!

    Thanks for the responses. I will look at the Perry Wallace book. I am trying to find a roster that includes hometowns. I am going to be in Nashville in a about 3 weeks and I think I will go by the basketball office and see if I can get it though an old program archive. Thanks for the stats information that helped as well!

    Hagan was an incredible player who deserves to be in the VU Hall of Fame and should have been there long ago. I would have included him in the second class.
