Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Vanderbilt women’s basketball hosts Lipscomb today, coming off a 10-day break for finals. The Commodores are 9-1 on the season, having won two straight after the team took its only loss of the season after a 7-0 start. Lipscomb is 6-4 and ranked 145 in NET. Today’s game is at 1 PM CT and streaming on SEC Network+.

The men’s team lost 76-54 to Texas Tech last night, dropping to 4-6 on the season. They’re now 4-6 on the season and, more disturbing, are ranked 230 in KenPom, and are now favored in only one of the 22 remaining games. This is fine.

The football team appears set to hire New Mexico State’s Tim Beck as its new offensive coordinator.
