After the difficult loss at Tennessee, coming home to Rupp Arena is certainly something the Wildcats are looking forward to. Tonight’s game against Vanderbilt offers the Wildcats a chance to get back to winning, but they won’t make it easy.

Here’s what we need to see out of Kentucky tonight:

  • Much better ballhandling. Kentucky turned the ball over almost 30% against the Florida Gators and over 23% of the time against the Tennessee Volunteers.

  • Rebound well. Kentucky rebounded well against the Gators, but it didn’t help them. They got dominated on the glass by the Vols, and it crushed them.

  • Be aggressive on defense. Kentucky’s defense has been soft as butter, allowing the Gators to shoot nearly 55%, and Tennessee to shoot 63% eFG.

  • For the love of God, communicate with each other, and listen to what Coach Calipari tells you. Please.

That’s what I have. We need this one. I need to write something about a win. I’m not sure I can make these fingers type out another postmortem like the one against Tennessee.

Go, ’Cats!
