We walked away from Indianapolis with another win, this time leaning heavily on good defense to carry a bad 3-pt shooting day. The Lipscomb Misspellers are having a decent season so far, and judging by the current standings and a look at the team’s resumes and comparative NET rankings, they may have a decent chance at the ASUN’s spot in the tournament via the conference championship. However, I think Vanderbilt will be fine. Our strength of schedule so far has been about the same as Lipscomb’s, but in those games pretty much all our averages have been better than Lipscomb’s. We also are just a bigger, faster, stronger team. This isn’t a sure-thing win, but we won against Butler, presumably a comparable team, so I think we should be able to put the “L” in “Lipscomb” and send them back south to whence they came.
