What to Know

The Vanderbilt Commodores and the Stanford Cardinal will compete for holiday cheer at 8:30 p.m. ET Saturday at SimpliFI Arena at Stan Sheriff Center. The two teams each escaped (but just barely!) with wins against their previous opponents.

Vanderbilt was expected to lose against the Brigham Young Cougars on Thursday, but instead they received a nice stocking stuffer. The Commodores ultimately received the gift of a 69-67 victory from a begrudging BYU squad. The top scorer for Vanderbilt was guard Scotty Pippen Jr. (23 points).

Speaking of close games: the Liberty Flames typically have all the answers at home, but on Thursday Stanford proved too difficult a challenge. Stanford ultimately received the gift of a 79-76 win from a begrudging Liberty squad. Their forward Spencer Jones looked sharp as he shot 5-for-8 from beyond the arc and finished with 25 points and six boards.

Barring any buzzer beaters, Vanderbilt is expected to win a tight contest. They are currently three-for-three against the spread in their most recent games, a trend bettors might want to take into account.

The wins brought both teams up to an identical 8-4. Two stats to keep an eye on: The Commodores enter the game with 16.8 takeaways on average, good for 32nd best in college basketball. Less enviably, the Cardinal are stumbling into the matchup with the 32nd most turnovers per game in college basketball, having accrued 15.4 on average.
