Vanderbilt is a 1-point favorite against the Wildcats.

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

The last time Vanderbilt played Kansas State, Kansas State was ranked in the top 25 and Vanderbilt prevailed by a 14-7 score at Vanderbilt Stadium. Let's not talk about what happened after that, though.

Of course, this time we face Kansas State on the hardwood, at 1:30 PM CT at Memorial Gym. Vanderbilt is a 1-point favorite according to the wise guys, and KenPom projects Vanderbilt to win by a score of 69-68. Today's game won't be televised, but you can stream it on SEC Network+ via the WatchESPN (which frankly seems strange for a game between two power conference teams), and Joe Fisher's call is available on the Vanderbilt IMG Sports Network.

Last time out, Vanderbilt beat Radford 74-62 behind a career-high 27 points from Riley LaChance. This is a better opponent than Radford, but also the kind of team that Vanderbilt will need to beat if they want to have a shot at the NCAA Tournament. Anchor Down.
