Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

The 2022 SEC Tournament opens tonight in Tampa (for some reason) and, since it’s our new tradition, Wednesday night means Vanderbilt is playing. The Commodores will play Georgia, which went 6-25, 1-17 in the SEC, lost twice to Vanderbilt in the regular season, and have reportedly already fired their coach. So, this is a tossup, right? Right.

In other news, Scotty Pippen Jr. was named first-team All-SEC and Jordan Wright was named the SEC’s Scholar-Athlete of the Year.

Also, seems that Vanderbilt will be playing in next season’s Wooden Legacy, the annual event in Anaheim, along with Washington, St. Mary’s, and Fresno State. That hasn’t been announced by Vanderbilt, but ESPN has announced it.

Men’s tennis takes a brief break from SEC play and will host Northwestern today at 1 PM CT.
