Vandy starts it off this afternoon against St. John's. Barring upsets, Vandy could then move on to the winner's bracket with Indiana and Kansas. A good showing here could vault Vandy into the top 10 I think.

23-4 Vandy. 8 minutes in.

11-23-2015, 03:11 PM
It's like 43-14 now.

Chris Mullin has a tough task in front of him.

11-23-2015, 03:23 PM
53-24 halftime. WE WANT BAMA.

When Vandy plays like this, I wonder how many teams in the nation can beat them. Shooters all over the floor and spread throughout the bench.

Vandy whips St Johns in first round 92-55.

Will likely get Indiana tomorrow (they play Wake in the next game today)

11-23-2015, 04:43 PM
Just for the record, this is still the same Vandy team that dropped 2 spots in the polls this week.

Vandy-IU could be a really fun game. Has the potential to be a 90-85 track meet.

Wake will probably beat IU, that would be typical.

11-23-2015, 07:15 PM
What a win for Wake! 19-6 run to end the game

11-23-2015, 09:02 PM
Of course Indiana loses to wake.

11-24-2015, 04:38 PM
Indiana beats St. Johns by 10. Gets a little interesting for comparative scores.

Winner's Bracket:
Vandy vs Wake
Kansas vs UCLA

11-24-2015, 08:50 PM
Now Vandy laying the wood to Wake. 54-36 early 2nd half.

11-24-2015, 09:35 PM
Vandy wins 86-64. Will face winner of UCLA/Kansas for the Maui championship tomorrow.

11-24-2015, 09:37 PM
I see no reason Vandy can't beat KU and probably by 8-10... Not that impressed By the Jayhawks (now if they get Diallo eligible by Feb they will be really damn good) and Vandy is exactly what I've expected. Really good to exceptional on O and solid to good on D.

Vandy is so underrated at 19. Kansas better beat UCLA.

11-25-2015, 09:41 AM
Vandy vs Kansas for the title.

Now we're talking. Self made a good point. He talked about how difficult it will be to prepare for Vandy's offense in basically a few hours. Vandy has a nice height advantage. Interested to see how this one goes.

It's on in Maui. I love big basketball games in November.

Vandy leads after the first TO, 7-3.

11-25-2015, 10:31 PM
Wayne Selden boys.....Straight ballin in Maui

11-25-2015, 10:54 PM
Vandy has still never trailed in this tournament.

Leading at the half 30-26

11-25-2015, 11:01 PM
Vandy having an off shooting first half and still up by 4 on Kansas is a very bad sign for the rest of the nation.

11-25-2015, 11:25 PM
Shooting woes are continuing...Kansas has taken the lead 45-38 with 13 minutes left.

11-25-2015, 11:52 PM
We've let Kansas get into their transition game. Vandy gonna have to make it rain these last 3 minutes to have a chance.

11-26-2015, 12:00 AM
we picked a bad night to have a cold shooting night.

Kansas is going to win. they're up 7 with 30 seconds.

11-26-2015, 12:15 AM
6/28 from three. A lot of those were open looks. Kansas was hot in the second half. They hit 50% from three for the game.

I was thinking. For Vandy, this was really the first time any of them have been on a national stage. We're still young. This one shows we're not on the elite level just yet.

Good showing in Maui. Vandy will be tough this year.
