On today’s episode of Live from West End, Sports Editor Bryce Smith and Deputy Sports Editor Aiden Rutman head to the studio to discuss a packed week of Vanderbilt sports! They first discuss the magnitude of men’s basketball’s current five game win-streak, as well as what they can do to keep it going. Next, they discuss women’s basketball’s key win over Kentucky and the culture that continues to grow within the program. After that, they provide rapid-fire recaps of Vanderbilt baseball’s three-game weekend at the College Baseball Showdown, which included big wins against Oklahoma State and Texas. They end by asking  three questions for Vanderbilt Athletics for the upcoming week, while also discussing infamous athletes and insults in their “Anything but Vandy” segment.
