Anchor Drop, December 22, 2021: Basketball in Hawaii

Get ready to stay up late.

NCAA Basketball: Austin Peay at Vanderbilt Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Get ready to stay up late. As Vanderbilt men’s basketball opens the Hawaiian Airlines Diamond Head Classic tonight against host Hawaii, the Commodores will be playing at 11 PM Central time. Last time out, Vanderbilt snapped a three-game losing streak with an easy win over Austin Peay, and the Commodores also saw the debut of Dayton transfer Rodney Chatman.

Women’s basketball improved to 8-5 with a 64-45 win over Saint Joseph’s on Tuesday, with Brinae Alexander scoring 18 points. The Commodores will close out the nonconference schedule against Alabama State on Tuesday.

Collegiate Baseball named four Vanderbilt players — Enrique Bradfield Jr., Dom Keegan, Nick Maldonado, and Carter Young — to its preseason All-American team.
