The 2013-14 Basketball Season
I took a look at the landscape of SEC basketball for the 2014-15 season a month or so ago. Now that we're into the offseason, well, let's just say our outlook is a bit clearer. And still somewhat muddled. But important updates nonetheless.
Vanderbilt's backcourt got a big boost on Wednesday when Cornell transfer Nolan Cressler chose Vanderbilt over Dayton, Michigan, and Pittsburgh. He'll join a loaded 2014 recruiting class that's primed to continue the Vandy tradition.
Vanderbilt senior point guard Kyle Fuller played his last game for the Commodores, and while his stats may not reflect it, he was one of the most important players for this Vandy squad. So what is his final legacy after a long journey in Nashville?
Vanderbilt's season is over, and the Commodores will notch a second-straight losing season. Mississippi State, who had lost 15 straight games before Wednesday, eliminated the 'Dores from the first round of the SEC Tournament, 82-68.
Vanderbilt will kick off the SEC Tournament on Wednesday when they face 3-15 Mississippi State. What can the Commodores learn from South Carolina's regular season-ending victory over the Bulldogs?
That's right, Vanderbilt has a 0.6 percent chance of winning the SEC Tournament and claiming an automatic bid! Unfortunately, that may actually be overstating things a bit.
Vanderbilt will have a chance to knock Tennessee off the NCAA Tournament bubble when they travel to Knoxville on Saturday. Can the Commodores follow Texas A&M's blueprint for success and beat their arch rival on the road?
Florida hasn't lost since December 2nd, while Vanderbilt got beat by South Carolina two weeks ago. However, #1 teams often find a way to lose when Memorial Magic is in the air.
