Vanderbilt-Murray State Prediction: Are The 'Dores Gone In Round 1?

Kevin Stallings will have his team ready to play

#4 Vanderbilt vs #13 Murray State
San Jose, CA
2:30 ET

Congratulations Vandy on a top four seed. Your prize is a trip all the way out to the San Jose to play a 30-4 Murray State team.

The Racers are a team that shoots over 50% from the field and holds opponents to under 40%. Teams that have done that recently include National Champions North Carolina and Florida. Or at least that is how I remember the stat when ESPN showed it.

Murray State looks like a great upset pick, but they only played 1 RPI top 50 team all year and lost. Vandy is 4-2 against the top 50.

The Commodores are the lowest favorite of all the 4 seeds at –3. Even Purdue without Robbie Hummel against NCAA tested Siena is –4.

The Racers are a chic pick because of their record and everyone associates Vanderbilt with academics and slow white guys.

This Vandy team is different.
