The Kentucky Wildcats came down to Nashville and defeated the short-handed Vanderbilt Commodores 71-62. It just goes to show you how good Las Vegas can be, who predicted an 8-point game. I'll have a full postmortem a bit later, I have to attend to some domestic matters first.
Here's your game box score:
Here's the final box score from UK's win at Vandy: pic.twitter.com/i1vsQRKkms— Kentucky Athletics (@UKAthleticsNews) January 11, 2014
Kentucky dominated the Commodores on the backboard. It's the reason UK won.
Willie Cauley-Stein had a very good game, and so did Alex Poythress and Jarrod Polson.
Julius Randle got 11 rebounds, all in the first half, and seemed out of sorts.
Kentucky managed to shoot 43%, but they allowed Vandy to shoot 50%.
Damian Jones looks like a really good find for Vanderbilt. Vandy's maturity was a big reason why they kept the game so close.
This was a good road win for this young UK team. Kentucky gave really good effort on defense, and really toughed out the game when they were challenged late in the second half.
More later. Go, 'Cats!
