Periscope: Vanderbilt vs. Tennessee

Reminder: This game is a "white out." Vandy fans are encouraged to wear white to the game.

Second place in the SEC East is on the line tonight as Vanderbilt looks to go for the sweep against Tennessee on ESPN's Super Tuesday. Ken Pomeroy gives Vandy a 62% chance of victory (75-72 with a tempo of 73). Unfortunately, kenpom doesn't have a predictor for J.P. Prince backhands, taunts or fouls on 3 point shot attempts. I'd say the likelihood of seeing either is close to 80%. It is a rivalry matchup. And it will be "chippy."

Schedule Breakdown

 

Not much has changed since the last meeting. Vanderbilt is better offensively. Tennessee is better defensively. Throw the numbers out the window since it's a rivalry game with serious implications.

Statistical Breakdown

 

Again, the numbers really don't mean much, since it's a rivalry game. Vandy has the edge according to the tempo-free statistics. Keep in mind that individual numbers aren't adjusted for strength of schedule.

Four Factors: Similar to last time, I would expect Vanderbilt to win eFG% and FTRate and for Tennessee to win TO% and OReb%. I think the margin by which Vandy wins eFG% will determine the outcome. I would also imagine quite a correction from the abysmal shooting performance Vandy had against Georgia, which would have to be an encouraging consideration for Commodore fans.
