Thirteen SEC schools will play an exhibition game. Vanderbilt won’t.

But, hey, there was a closed scrimmage the other day! There was a basketball game played at Memorial Gym on Sunday. You mean you didn’t know? That’s because it was a so-called secret scrimmage. Just finished our private scrimmage at Vanderbilt. Highlights coming soon. #SicEm— Baylor Basketball (@BaylorMBB) October 23, 2016 It’s...

Vanderbilt Basketball Position Previews: Point Guard

Do we, in fact, have a point guard? Before we begin our position previews, I want to point you to a tweet by John Gasaway that pretty well sums up my thoughts on the matter. Positions in hoops are like Golden Globe categories. Problem began when someone thought what works in baseball and football would translate.— John Gasaway (@JohnGasaway) October 20, 2016 While...

Vanderbilt finished the 2016 season ranked 25th in KenPom, so what explains a 39-spot drop to open this season? While I don’t know the specifics (in that I am not Ken Pomeroy), I know some of the factors Pomeroy has said in the past that influence his...

The Stop Screwing Around GIF Thread

You kids screw around too much. No, Vanderbilt Commodores football team, a homecoming game is not the time or the place to screw around. That’s what the postgame GIF thread is for. Stop screwing around, you kids screw around too much. Have at it.

Vanderbilt takes way too long, but puts away Tennessee State

Even a game against an FCS opponent is an adventure with this team. Tennessee State took the second play of the game 93 yards to get a 7-0 lead just over a minute in, and that set the tone for the game. The Tigers may only have 63 scholarships to give, but they weren’t going away quietly. After Khari Blasingame scored to cap a 5-play, 73-yard drive for Vanderbilt and tie the...

Vanderbilt makes short trip to take on Western Kentucky

Derek Mason isn't concerned about his Vanderbilt Commodores being the first Southeastern Conference team to play a football game on Western Kentucky's campus. He is concerned about how tough it will be to get a win. The teams are separated by about 70 miles and WKU left Nashville last year with a 14-12 win en route to a 12-2 season.

WATCH: Vandy drills 80-foot buzzer-beater vs. Florida

We’ve seen our share of end-of-half buzzer beaters in college basketball this year, but I don’t remember one quite like this. With 2.7 seconds left in the first half, after teammate Matthew Fisher-Davis blocked Florida’s Schuyler Rimmer, Vanderbilt center Josh Henderson let loose a laser from the foul line at the opposite side of the court. 80-feet laser, it found the bottom...
