Tennessee (10-6, 2-2) and Vanderbilt (8-8, 0-3) are set for their first of two meetings this season. Tonight’s will take place in Nashville at quirky Memorial Gymnasium. Tennessee is looking to rebound from a blowout loss on the road at Georgia on Wednesday night. Vandy? Well they’re just looking for their first SEC win since the 2017-18 season.
New head coach Jerry Stackhouse will get his first taste of this rivalry tonight, though he’ll have to do it without his best player. Aaron Nesmith is out for the rest of the season, meaning the Commodores will somehow have to replace 23 points per game.
Expect to see Saben Lee and Scottie Pippen Jr. to try and pick up the slack for Vanderbilt. Tennessee has won three straight in Nashville — can they keep that streak alive tonight?
