Vandy Stats pack
For those that like mice type... here
The have some pretty bad home losses... vs App. State, Furman, and Georgetown (not the loss itself, just how bad it was). They did beat UT last week, but I suspect that was more of a fluke than what they are. UGA beat them down in their last game and they did lose to Auburn to open up the conference schedule (both on the road).
The hard stats:
- Scoring margin: +9.1
- Rebounding: -.2
- FG: 46%
- 3pt FG: 37%
- FT: 71% (thought that would be higher)
I haven't seen them play this year, but we all know if they sink their 3s we're in big trouble. Cage is their best 3pt shooter although Foster and Byars have no problem chucking them up as well. Heck, looking at the stats the three of them take roughly 50% of their shots from beyond the arc. Wow.
Neltner is their only "big" guy that gets real PT (6'9") so again... we should pound it inside early and often.
Prediction: This is the year to break that jinx in Nashville. Alabama by 12 led by another Hendrix double-double and a gritty effort from Steele.
No TV for this game. Gametime is 8PM EST (7PM CST) 1/17. Audio broadcast on yahoo.com amongst other places.
