Why Vanderbilt can cover

The Commodores have been improving as the year has progressed and of their 15 losses, seven have been by single digits. With the loss of sophomore guard Dylan Disu to a knee injury, one of the players that has stepped up his game is senior guard Maxwell Evans. Evans is fourth on the team in scoring (8.5 points), and is averaging 3.1 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 0.8 steals per game. He has reached double figures in nine games, including three of the last five contests. He scored a season-high 29 points on Jan. 30 against South Carolina.

Another key component to the team’s offense is senior guard D.J. Harvey. He has scored in double figures in two of the past four games. His best game was a 16-point performance against Arkansas on Jan. 23. For the season, he is averaging 5.6 points, 2.6 rebounds, 0.5 assists and 0.5 steals per game.

Why Texas A&M can cover

The Aggies are led by sophomore forward Emanuel Miller, who has been on fire of late. For the season, Miller is averaging 15.9 points, 8.2 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 0.9 steals per game. Since the Aggies’ month-long pause, Miller has posted back-to-back double-doubles, including a 23-point, 10-rebound effort at No. 12 Arkansas on Saturday and a 24-point, 13-rebound performance against Mississippi State last Wednesday. He has six double-doubles on the season and has scored 20 or more points six times.

Senior guard Quenton Jackson also plays a big part in A&M’s success, averaging 10.5 points, 2.4 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.2 steals per game. He is connecting on 48 percent of his field goals, including 41.5 percent from 3-point range, and 74.5 percent of his free throws.
