The Pittsburgh Panthers typically have all the answers at home, but on Wednesday Vanderbilt proved too difficult a challenge. Vanderbilt escaped with a win by the margin of a single free throw, 75-74. The top scorers for Vanderbilt were forward Myles Stute (14 points), forward Liam Robbins (14 points), and guard Jordan Wright (12 points).

Meanwhile, the Incarnate Word Cardinals typically have all the answers at home, but on Saturday Grambling proved too difficult a challenge. Grambling took their game at home with ease, bagging a 72-39 victory over the Cardinals.

The Commodores are the favorite in this one, with an expected 14-point margin of victory. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past three games, so buyers beware.

Their wins bumped Vanderbilt to 5-4 and the Tigers to 5-3. We'll see which team can carry over their success and which team inevitably falls when Vanderbilt and Grambling clash.
