Anchor Drop, March 4, 2020: Women’s basketball at SEC Tournament

Also: Saben Lee drops 38 on Alabama.

NCAA Womens Basketball: Tennessee at Vanderbilt Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Women’s basketball opens the SEC Tournament today at 10:00 AM CT against Auburn. The tournament is being held at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, South Carolina. The women are 14-15 and apparently have an outside shot at the Women’s NIT if they can win a couple of games at the SEC Tournament. Today’s game will be televised on the SEC Network, and I will be disappointed if you guys don’t turn this into an open thread for the game.

Speaking of the women’s team, Koi Love was named to the SEC’s All-Freshman team, and Jordyn Cambridge to the All-Defensive team.

Men’s basketball picked up its first SEC road win in exactly two years — the last one came at Ole Miss on March 3, 2018 — when it beat Alabama 87-79. The team took six scholarship players to Tuscaloosa with Jordan Wright not making the trip for an undisclosed reason. Saben Lee had a career high 38 points in the win, which improved Vanderbilt to 10-20 overall and 2-15 in the SEC — which honestly feels like progress after last year’s disaster.

Baseball beat Central Arkansas 10-2 to close its 11-game homestand with a 10-1 record, and improve to 11-3 on the season.

And now, if you want to feel depressed and angry, Chris Lee has a new podcast out.

Men’s golf came in third in the Cabo Collegiate.

And finally, the football team’s spring game is going to be broadcast on the SEC Network+ at 7:00 PM CT on April 3 — which, honestly, 12 of the 14 SEC spring games are on the SEC Network+ so we can’t really complain. And moving the spring games to the SEC Network+ while the main SEC Network shows baseball is ... logical? Reflective of the relative entertainment value of the two events?
