Vanderbilt 90, Buffalo 76: A surprisingly easy win

Tennessean: Vanderbilt basketball beats Buffalo behind Saben Lee’s 25 points

Hustler: Vanderbilt bounces back, blows out Buffalo 90-76 at home

One of the tests I’ve devised for how a game went that applies to most of the early-season schedule is what I call the “first media timeout of the second half” test. That is, was the game still in doubt at the under-16 timeout in the second half?

The reason I like this test is simple: if you had a bad first half, you have a chance to make halftime adjustments and get a little breathing room in the first four minutes.
