Anchor Drop, January 9, 2021: Mississippi State Today

Vanderbilt hosts Mississippi State at Memorial Gym at noon.

NCAA Basketball: Florida at Vanderbilt Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Well, Vanderbilt basketball is off to an 0-2 start in SEC play, but has another shot at ending the losing today. The Mississippi State Bulldogs come to town for a noon CT tip on the SEC Network. Vanderbilt is coming off a near-miss at Kentucky on Tuesday night, while Mississippi State drilled Missouri at home — so, this probably won’t be easy, but then I had Mississippi State picked to finish last in the conference in the preseason.

On Friday, Jerry Stackhouse had some injury updates: Clevon Brown is close to returning, while Issac McBride, it seems, is going to be out for a while.

Vanderbilt lost Grant Miller to the transfer portal earlier, and now he’s got a destination: Baylor, where his dad played in the 1990s.

The Hustler recaps Vanderbilt swimming’s fall season.
