Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Vanderbilt basketball hosts Arkansas today at 1:00 PM CT on ESPNU, with the SEC apparently neglecting to schedule the Commodores’ annual trip to Fayetteville. The Razorbacks are currently ranked 15th in the AP poll but will probably fall after getting drilled by Alabama at home the other night; Vanderbilt is a 3.5-point underdog, somehow.

Men’s tennis opens its spring season today at the Yale Martin Luther King Jr. Invitational, where they’ll play Memphis at 9 AM CT. (Traveling to Connecticut just to play Memphis? Yeah, that makes sense.) The women’s team opened yesterday by splitting eight singles matches with Miami, followed by dropping doubles matches 2-1 to NC State.

Clark Lea was in attendance last night at Brentwood Academy’s basketball game, where 2025 quarterback prospect George MacIntyre (yes, yes, the grandson of the former Vanderbilt coach) was playing. So, too, was Tennessee coach Bobby Hill Josh Heupel.

Here’s an OutSports feature on new Vanderbilt volleyball coach Anders Nelson.

Finally, the women’s golf team announced the signing of Ava Merrill on Friday.
