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

New, 1 comment

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.

VU LSU
Possessions 60.9 60.8
Points Per Possession 1.25 1.00
FG% 50.0% 36.9%
3FG% 35.0% 14.3%
FT% 65.2% 100.0%
Assist/Turnovers 2.00 1.50
Assists/Field Goals Made 51.9% 37.5%
% of Points by 3FG 27.6% 14.8%
Four Factors
eFG% 56.5% 39.2%
OReb% 33.3% 36.6%
TO% 11.5% 9.8%
FTRate 42.6% 15.4%

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.
