Anchor Drop, January 9, 2024: Baton Rouge tonight

Just gonna go see an old friend.

NCAA Basketball: Louisiana State at Texas Maria Lysaker-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Vanderbilt men’s basketball goes to Baton Rouge tonight where they’ll face LSU, whose leading scorer is an old friend: none other than Jordan Wright, averaging 15.0 ppg this season. LSU is 9-5 this season but 1-0 in the SEC after throttling Texas A&M on Saturday night. Tip-off is at 8:00 PM CT on the SEC Network. Can the comments win again?

Bowling finished the first day of the Stormin’ Blue & White Vegas Classic in sixth place, with wins over Oklahoma Christian, Duquesne, and St. Anselm, and a loss to Mount St. Mary’s. Day 2 starts today at 11:55 AM CT.

Football has a new safeties coach and, what do you know, he’s another hire from New Mexico State’s staff. There were also a few more off-field hires announced, and parlagi pointed out in the comments yesterday that Dan Jackson is no longer listed on the staff.
