Vanderbilt and LSU are two teams from the SEC that have been in and out of the College Women's Hoops S-Factor's predicted at-large bids. Well, more like in and out and in and out and in and out and in. Both the Commodores and the Tigers have crossed the line separating those in the tournament from those on the outside seven times, more than any other team (St. John's is next, having crossed the line four times).
Both LSU and Vanderbilt had wins last night, Vanderbilt's win over 23rd ranked Arkansas being more impressive than LSU's blowout of Ole Miss. Because of these wins, the S-Factor predicts both of these teams are back in the tournament. For now. LSU plays Florida this weekend, and Vanderbilt plays Kentucky. Vanderbilt has more to gain and less to lose from this weekend's matchup, but both Kentucky and Florida should present challenges to these trampoline teams.
Now in: Vanderbilt, LSU, Appalachian State
