Vanderbilt closes 2018 with a game it should win.

NCAA Basketball: Arizona State at Vanderbilt Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

UNC Asheville Bulldogs (2-11) at Vanderbilt Commodores (8-3)

When: 1:00 PM CT, Monday, December 31, 2018

Where: Memorial Gym, Nashville, Tennessee

TV: SEC Network+/WatchESPN

Radio: Vanderbilt IMG Sports Network

Vanderbilt opens SEC play on Saturday, but the Commodores will close out 2018 with one final tuneup. The Commodores host the UNC Asheville Bulldogs on Monday afternoon.

Is this a game Vanderbilt should win? Yes, and quite easily. UNC Asheville hasn’t beaten a Division I team this season, and they actually lost to a Division II team on Saturday. They’re the least-experienced team in the country according to KenPom, with four of their top five players being freshmen. KenPom predicts an 80-55 Vanderbilt win.
