Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Vanderbilt conquered Arkansas last night by a 75-74 score, the Commodores’ fourth win ever in Fayetteville, behind 22 points from Scotty Pippen Jr. and a key late three-pointer by Rodney Chatman. (Note that Vanderbilt is now 4-0 since Chatman started playing.) This is the first time since 2016-17 that Vanderbilt has won its SEC opener, and the Commodores should be favored to make it 2-0 on Saturday when South Carolina comes to town.

Women’s basketball’s Iyana Moore was recognized as SEC co-freshman of the week after nailing five three-pointers against Alabama State.
