Recording 16 rebounds, the number also marks the most in a game by a Commodore since assistant coach Marqu’es Webb had 15 on Dec. 5, 2016, against Tulane.
While earning the SEC honor, Love also picked up SEC Player of the Week honors from College Sports Madness this week.
Vanderbilt is back in action with two games this week against VCU (Thursday) and Gardner-Webb (Sunday). Both games are set to tip at 2 p.m. on SEC Network+.
