Tennessee Volunteers vs. Vanderbilt Commodores: stat comparison

Tennessee (15-8, 6-3) will attempt to bust up the logjam in the SEC East today when they host the Vanderbilt Commodores (15-8, 4-5) at 3:00 p.m. EST in Thompson-Boling Arena. Vanderbilt will be looking to avenge a 63-76 January 20 loss to the Vols.

Observations from the stats

Since the last time we played Vandy . . . we're scoring three fewer points per game and our rebounding margin has taken a hit . . . but we've improved scoring defense, scoring margin, FG%, and FG% defense. Vandy's gotten worse at scoring defense by about six points per contest, and their FG% defense has dropped off as well.

Vanderbilt players to watch

When these two teams met last time . . . both A.J. Ogilvy and Jermaine Beal were ranked in two categories. Today, only Beal is ranked, and he in only one category: assist-to-turnover ratio. Tennessee has the same three guys (Tyler Smith, Wayne Chism, and Bobby Maze) ranked in the same three categories (PPG, RPG, and assist-to-turnover ratio).

Other Stuff

KenPom's prediction: Tennessee wins 78-68. According to KenPom, Tennessee's probability of winning is 83%.
