SEC's leading scorer sitting out because of foot

Southeastern Conference leading scorer John Jenkins didn't play in Vanderbilt's opening game in the Southeastern Conference tournament because of an ailing foot.

Jenkins went through pregame warmups before Thursday night's game against LSU but sat on bench throughout the contest. The Commodores won 62-50.

School spokesman Andy Boggs says Jenkins tweaked his left foot in last weekend's regular-season finale against Florida and could have played if needed.

Jenkins leads the SEC at 19.4 points a game.
