Vanderbilt opens the SEC Tournament tonight against Texas A&M.

Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

The SEC Tournament opens tonight, and for the fourth year in a row, Vanderbilt is playing on Wednesday night. The Commodores’ game against Texas A&M (at 6 PM CT on the SEC Network) is the only game tonight, thanks to Auburn’s self-imposed postseason ban. Vanderbilt didn’t play the Aggies in the regular season, but they’re a slight favorite tonight. Lose tonight, and the season’s over; win, and Vanderbilt will play Florida on Thursday afternoon.

Football announced its spring practice schedule on Tuesday. The Commodores will hold the first of their 15 spring practices on March 17, and they’ll run all the way through the spring game scheduled for April 17. No information as of yet about television for the spring game, but we assume it will be since we’re actually calling it a spring game this time. Also, the football team announced Koko Nelson as the new on-campus recruiting coordinator, as well as three additional staff retentions.

Baseball beat Memphis 10-4 on Tuesday to complete an 11-game season-opening homestand with a 10-1 record. The Commodores will travel to Oklahoma State this weekend for their first road series of the season.

Vanderbilt lacrosse hosts Kennesaw State today at 1 PM CT in its last nonconference game. Stream is available here.

And, with it being Championship Week, it’s once again time for weekday basketball. Today’s daytime schedule is mostly the ACC, but you can find a full schedule at Blogging the Bracket.
