Anchor Drop, January 31, 2023: Alabama, Round 2

Vanderbilt heads to Tuscaloosa tonight.

NCAA Basketball: Kentucky at Vanderbilt Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Tonight’s going to be a tough one for Vanderbilt: the Commodores head down to Tuscaloosa to play the Alabama Crimson Tide, 18-3 on the season and 8-0 in the SEC. Alabama came into Memorial Gym two weeks ago and left with a 78-66 victory that wasn’t even that close. Anyway, game time is 7:30 PM CT on the SEC Network.

A couple of podcasts worth a listen: VandySports did its weekly podcast with former Vanderbilt equipment manager Luke Wyatt, where honestly, the most intriguing thing is that they think Jerry Stackhouse is gone after next season whether he wins or not (implying that he’d leave for another job if the team does well.) The Hustler podcasted about both basketball teams.
