Basketball: Vanderbilt Commodores 76, LSU Tigers 61 -- Postgame Report

The Vanderbilt Commodores overcame the LSU Tigers thanks to a strong second half performance. The team hasn't been shooting well from outside since the victory over Tennessee; thankfully they showed some signs that they may be poised for a statistical correction against the Wildcats tomorrow.

Also, I can already smell the Lexingtons. And I'm indoors. Eww.

Periscope prediction: "If Festus plays, I think Vandy wins OReb%, FTRate, and eFG%. If Festus doesn't play, I think LSU takes TO% and OReb%." Result: 3/4. Just missed on OReb. At least it was fairly close. This might be a quirk of the offensive stylings of LSU -- when you jack up random threes at odd moments, you're bound to be the beneficiary of some long rebounds.
