What’s the best medicine for a three-game losing streak? Why, it’s the worst team in the conference — and a team that Vanderbilt already beat two weeks ago — coming to Memorial Gym.

Georgia is having a rough season. Prior to Tuesday night’s 82-76 win over Alabama, the Bulldogs had lost eight in a row — which, fine, six of those were SEC games, but that losing streak started with losses to East Tennessee State and Gardner-Webb, the latter by a score of 77-60. (An SEC team losing to ETSU? Why, that sounds like Vanderbilt football.) They’ve also lost to the likes of Cincinnati, Georgia Tech, Virginia, Northwestern, Wofford, and George Mason. Their wins: FIU, South Carolina State, Memphis, Jacksonville, Western Carolina, and Alabama. (Seriously, what is Penny Hardaway doing?)

Anyway, while a win won’t exactly revive Vanderbilt’s season — the Commodores, after all, have a trip to Rupp Arena and a visit from LSU coming next week — a loss, and we can just get ready for baseball season. I am installing the comments as a 7.5-point favorite over the offense. Get ready.
