Anchor Drop, November 24, 2022: Happy Thanksgiving

Basketball today, both men’s and women’s.

Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate, enjoy your food and family today, but watch the World Cup instead of the parade.

Both Vanderbilt basketball teams play today. The women play in Cancun at 3 PM CT against NC State, but only those of you insane enough to pay for FloHoops will be able to watch it. (Also... we already know who we play tomorrow? This isn’t even a tournament?) The men, after losing to St. Mary’s 75-65 last night, will play Fresno State in the consolation game of the Wooden Legacy at 9:00 PM CT on ESPNU.

Apologies for the Anchor Drop’s absence yesterday; I was driving for the entire morning.
