SEC Tournament: Texas A&M vs. Vanderbilt preview, prediction, etc.

Texas A&M Tennis

After a dominating performance, the Mississippi State Bulldogs advance to take on the No.3 seed Vols on Friday night around 9:30 EST.

Lamar Peters scored all 15 of his points from beyond the arc as seven Bulldogs players had at least seven points. Heading into Thursday, Quinndary Weatherspoon led the Bulldogs in scoring with 18.5 points per game while Peters led Mississippi State in assists with 5.3 assists per game and Reggie Perry led the Bulldogs on the glass with 7.1 rebounds per game this season. His injury left Texas A&M coach Billy Kennedy with seven scholarship players, and this loss likely was the last of his eight-year career after reports he will be fired once the season ends. Their last loss to an SEC team was against No. 9 Mississippi State in the SEC tournament by a narrow margin, 3-4. It's the most losses in a season in Vanderbilt history.

In A&M's first meeting with Vanderbilt this season, the Aggies came out lethargic and lackadaisical, quickly falling behind 11-0. Matt Ryan knocked down a 3 with 17:48 left to keep Vanderbilt with UNLV and Princeton as the only programs to hit a 3 in every game since the 3-point line was added for the 1986-87 season.

After the victory, Kerry Blackshear, who had 19 points and 10 rebounds, spoke about Tech's offensive versatility.

His mid-range jumper about a minute later forced a Vanderbilt timeout at 15:23, the lead up to 17.

Mississippi State is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record while the under is 6-1 in their last 7 neutral site games.

Vanderbilt was troubled mostly by its issues getting going on offense, but it was in large part of how the Aggies play defensively. Kennedy said it was easy to see the difference in personnel, experience and physicality in the first five minutes. It just has been that type of year. You can't win at this level and in this league with the type of teams we're playing against if you're not at your best.

Mississippi State had 17 assists and 14 turnovers, while the Aggies had nine assists and 12 turnovers. They outrebounded Texas A&M 38-24 and had a 36-18 scoring edge in the paint. "That's what we did last time we played them, kind of kept the game a little closer than it should've been".

CBB Today is one of the outlets to write about the idea of Buzz Williams leaving the Virginia Tech Hokies for the Texas A&M Aggies gig.
