Vanderbilt Commodores – March Madness Team Predictions, Odds and Preview 2016

South No. 11 Vanderbilt (Overall: 19-13, Conf: 11-7)

Team Strengths:

Vanderbilt has a good command of the three-point line on both ends of the court. Not only are the Dores among the best at shooting the three, they’re also the third-best in the entire nation at defending it (29 percent). They are also outstanding at cleaning the class and defending the paint thanks to the size and length of twin towers Damian Jones and Luke Kornet.

Team Weaknesses:


Despite possessing some tremendous talent led by potential NBA lottery picks Jones and guard Wade Baldwin, Vanderbilt remains maddening inconsistent. The Dores started the season just 8-7, went only 11-7 in conference play, and crashed out in the first round of the conference tournament to Tennessee.

There’s a chance they can finally put their undoubted talents together in the tournament, but the larger sample size suggests that they could just as easily crash out in the first hurdle.

Team Stats:

Category Stat NCAA Rank
Points Per Game 76.8 90th
Rebounds Per Game 38.6 64th
Blocks Per Game 5.5 10th
3-Point Percentage 38.8% 21st
