Anchor Drop, December 9, 2021: Women’s basketball beats Albany

Yes, the Anchor Drop is back.

NCAA Womens Basketball: Tulane at Connecticut David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning. I should probably actually do the Anchor Drop, right?

Vanderbilt women’s basketball beat Albany 52-41 on Wednesday, improving to 6-5 on the season. The team isn’t that good, but we’re already seeing reasons to be excited about the Shea Ralph era, with the current state of the team mostly being a result of Stephanie White steering the ship into the iceberg. More from the Hustler.

Also in the Hustler, Justin Hershey breaks down what’s wrong with the Vanderbilt offense (we’re talking the men’s shooty hoops team, here.)

In recruiting news, Vanderbilt football landed a commitment from Baytown (TX) Lee ATH Trudell Berry, who’s rated as a four-star by the 247 Sports in-house rankings. I think Vanderbilt is recruiting him to play defensive back, and from the sound of things Clark Lea is about to close strong before the early signing period.
