Saturday afternoon, the Vanderbilt Commodores will face the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.
The Vanderbilt Commodores needed a late rally to get past the Western Carolina Catamounts 99 -79 on Tuesday night. The Commodores faced an early and unexpected challenge from the Catamounts in the 1st half. Western Carolina led for most of that opening half and took a 3 point lead into the break. In the 2nd half, the Commodores regained their form. By the midway point of the 2nd half, Vanderbilt had taken over the game. The Commodores shot 55% overall and 47% from 3-point distance as they were led by Riley LaChance and his career high 26 points. Western Carolina probably dealt Vanderbilt a needed wakeup call as they enter a game against a formidable opponent.
The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets didn't experience as much trouble in their Monday night game as they dispatched the Appalachian State Mountaineers 70 - 57. Appalachian State started well and that might have thrown Georgia Tech slightly off balance. But before the 1st half came to an end, the Yellow Jackets put down the resistance to lead by 11 points. The Mountaineers came close in the beginning of the 2nd half but they couldn't stop the Yellow Jackets from pulling away and sealing the win. Georgia Tech was paced by Marcus Georges-Hunt and his 15 points as the Yellow Jackets shot 44% overall. Georgia Tech will have to keep Vanderbilt from getting a good start if they want to get the win.
