Periscope: Vanderbilt vs. Georgia - SECT

Update: In my haste earlier, I forgot to add in the links to the various game previews. It has since been fixed.

Enough pussyfooting around. Georgia is a solid club, but Vanderbilt is clearly the superior team. It's time the Commodores played like it against the Bulldogs. If Vandy doesn't come out and play with the intensity and fire that they've shown against teams like Kentucky and Tennessee, Georgia will advance. That's the bottom line, plain and simple. Play with heart. Play with purpose. This is Vandy's best shot at an SEC Tournament title since I've been alive. The stars have aligned for a run to Sunday. Take care of business.

If anytime, anywhere is the team's mantra, how about 9pm and Bridgestone Arena?

Ken Pomeroy gives Vanderbilt an 80% chance of victory (78-69 with a tempo of 68).

Bulldogs vs Commodores coverage

Schedule Breakdown

 

The Commodores will be the most efficient offensive team and the 17th most efficient defensive team that the Bulldogs will have played this season. Georgia will be the 8th most efficient offensive team and the 21st most efficient defensive team that Vanderbilt will have played this season.

Statistical Breakdown

 

Everyone knows about Trey Thompkins and Travis Leslie for Georgia. Stallings has referred to Georgia as one of the three most physical teams this season in the SEC (along with Kentucky and Vanderbilt). When comparing the tempo free statistics of the various key players and the two benches, Vanderbilt nearly sweeps the board.

Four Factors: Vanderbilt is the better team with regards to turnover percentage (TO%), free throw rate (FTRate) and effective field goal percentage (eFG%), which Georgia is clearly the better offensive rebounding team (OReb%). Prediction: I'm not sure that Vanderbilt has put forth its best effort against the Bulldogs in either matchup this season. Whether that fact is due to Georgia's play, Vanderbilt's lack of motivation against the last-place team in the tough SEC East, or some combination of the two, I believe that Vanderbilt's recent loss to the Gamecocks on Jermaine Beal's Senior Day has them motivated to play. I think Vandy wins eFG%, FTRate, and TO%, while Georgia takes OReb%.
