Anchor Drop, March 11, 2022: Moving On

Vanderbilt beats Alabama and will play Kentucky tonight.

NCAA Basketball: SEC Conference Tournament- Alabama vs Vanderbilt Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Vanderbilt basketball advanced to the quarterfinals of the SEC Tournament for the first time since 2017 after beating Alabama 82-76 last night, erasing a 15-point second-half deficit in the process. Now, the Commodores will move on to face Kentucky for the third time this season tonight at about 7:30 PM CT. Tonight’s game will be televised on the SEC Network.

Meanwhile, I’m laughing at this.

Baseball will play a doubleheader today against Wagner to start a three-game series. This was altered from the original plan due to the possibility of freezing weather. Today’s first game will start at noon CT with the second game coming 45 minutes later; both games will be streamed on the SEC Network+.

Plenty of other sports action today: men’s tennis hosts Texas A&M (6 PM CT); women’s tennis hosts Arkansas at 1; and lacrosse hosts UMass at 4 PM CT.

MLB’s stupid labor dispute has apparently ended, and it’s ended in time for them to still get a full season in (albeit starting on April 7, which is fine, because now it doesn’t even overlap with college hoops season.)
