CBB | UAB 67 @ Vanderbilt 59 | 03/22 | 11:00 PM UTC
ANALYSIS: Yes, these teams are both Top 50 in offensive efficiency. But this total feels over-adjusted, likely for UAB’s pace of play. The Blazers’ adjusted tempo (70.6) ranks 42nd in the nation, while the Dores’ pace (67.5) is the nation’s average. Historically, Vanderbilt games against fast-paced teams have finished no where near this total. Since 2019 when Jerry Stackhouse took over the program, Vandy has played 47 games against teams with an adjusted tempo of 70 or above. The average total of those games is 146. In that same span, Vandy games are 3-5 O/U when the total is 153 or higher. It will be a higher-scoring game, but this is a stretch.
