Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Vanderbilt got past its opener in the Diamond Head Classic last night this morning, technically, beating Hawaii 68-54 and setting up a semifinal matchup with BYU at 9 PM CT tonight. Tom actually has some hope of staying up for this one! Scotty Pippen Jr. led the Commodores with 21 points, and they’re now 7-4 on the season and back at 77th in KenPom.

Tonight’s game will be televised on ESPN2.
