What to Know

The UAB Blazers have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. They and the Vanderbilt Commodores are set to clash at 7 p.m. ET March 22 at Memorial Gym in the third round of the NIT.

The Morehead State Eagles typically have all the answers at home, but on Sunday UAB proved too difficult a challenge. The Blazers strolled past Morehead State with points to spare, taking the matchup 77-59. UAB's forward Ty Brewer was one of the most active players for the squad, picking up 25 points in addition to nine rebounds.

Meanwhile, the Michigan Wolverines typically have all the answers at home, but this past Saturday Vanderbilt proved too difficult a challenge. Vanderbilt escaped with a win by the margin of a single free throw, 66-65. Having forecasted a close victory for them, the oddsmakers were right on the money. Vanderbilt relied on the efforts of guard Tyrin Lawrence, who had 24 points along with nine boards, and guard Ezra Manjon, who had 17 points.
