Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Vanderbilt women’s basketball closes out 2023 — and its nonconference schedule — today against Radford at 1 PM CT on the SEC Network. Radford is 4-9 on the season and uh, has yet to come within 46 points of a power conference team. So Vanderbilt should get to 13-1 to end the year.

The men’s team finally won, beating Dartmouth 69-53 behind 22 points from Tyrin Lawrence. It was a win, though I wasn’t particularly impressed with it.
