Anchor Drop, November 1, 2023: Basketball’s almost here

Jerry Stackhouse had his preseason press conference yesterday.

NCAA Basketball: SEC Conference Tournament Quarterfinals - Kentucky vs Vanderbilt Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Vanderbilt basketball season tips off next Tuesday and just one week prior to that, Jerry Stackhouse had his preseason press availability — nothing especially ground-breaking, though Stackhouse did say we should be sold out for the opener against Presbyterian. (Also in the linked Hustler article: notes on Clark Lea’s press conference.)

In other news, men’s and women’s tennis both have players competing at the ITA Fall Championships in San Diego. The women’s team has both Celia-Belle Mohr (11:00 AM) and Bridget Stammel (1:45 PM) competing in singles along with the doubles team of Mohr and Anessa Lee (6:30 PM), while the men’s doubles team of Jeremie Casabon and Nathan Cox plays at 4:30 PM. Apparently there’s a live stream?

All hail Wednesday Night MACtion.
