Anchor Drop, December 11, 2021: The skid continues

Vanderbilt loses its third straight.

NCAA Basketball: Loyola-Chicago at Vanderbilt Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Well, that sucked: Vanderbilt lost its third game in a row last night, 69-58 to Loyola-Chicago, and in the process I think we figured out where all those shooters that Vanderbilt used to recruit have now gone as the Ramblers went 17-of-37 from deep. The Hustler has more.

And now, both basketball teams (and, well, all the other teams on campus) are on finals break. Vanderbilt won’t have another event until next Saturday. Since this is Anchor of Gold, though, we have an open thread coming today for the FCS, Division II, and Division III playoffs.
