The Tennessee General Assembly will honor the 2008-09 Vanderbilt women's basketball team 9:15 a.m. (CDT) Thursday at the Tennessee State Capitol.

Senator Douglas Henry sponsored a joint resolution (SJR0305), which was signed Wednesday by Governor Phil Bredesen, “to congratulate Head Coach Melanie Balcomb and the Vanderbilt University Commodores on winning the 2009 Southeastern Conference Women's Basketball Tournament Championship.”

The Commodores went 26-9, finished second in the SEC regular season standings and advanced to the NCAA tournament regional semifinals for the 14th time.
