Anchor Drop, February 22, 2023: LSU Tonight

Vanderbilt travels to play the SEC’s last-place team.

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

Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Vanderbilt basketball travels to Baton Rouge tonight, where they’ll play LSU, currently sitting in last place in the SEC as they pay off the devil for hiring and later firing Will “Strong-Ass Offer” Wade. (Seriously, though, LSU fans are super sensitive about the subject. Meanwhile, Ole Miss fans seriously want to hire either Wade or Chris Beard, recently fired from Texas for allegedly strangling his fiancee, and all I can say is that this is extremely on brand for Ole Miss.) Anyway, game time is 6:00 PM CT on the SEC Network. Yeah, early tip-off.

And we’re talking about basketball first because, seriously, the baseball team lost 5-4 to Central Arkansas yesterday. Which, midweek games, yadda yadda yadda. Vanderbilt gets another shot today against UAB at 4:30 PM CT on the SEC Network+. (This means it’s time for dueling game threads!)

Men’s golf needed to hold off an incredible day from Georgia Tech, but still managed to prevail by one shot to win the Watersound Invitational for their second consecutive win.

And in non-Vanderbilt news, well, there’s this:

This dude dropped 30 points two nights after furnishing the gun used to commit a murder, which... yeah, it sounds about right that Alabama would play him, you know what, never mind.
