Scouting Report: Alabama

Memorial Gym (VM/Stan Jones)

If you want the type of game that's different from Tuesday's slugfest against Tennessee, you're going to be disappointed on Saturday afternoon. Be warned: Vanderbilt is likely to play another game in the high 50s (maybe the low 60s) when it faces Alabama inside Memorial Gym.

"Beef: It's What's For Dinner." That advertising slogan made an impression on the American public in prior decades. Right now, "Defense: It's What's For Basketball" is Vanderbilt's slogan. The Commodores played one game in the high 50s on Tuesday night against Tennessee, and unless they shoot the ball particularly well on Saturday against Alabama, they're going to be stuck in the 50s yet again...
