Kentucky gets their sixth conference win while honoring the Black Mamba.

The Kentucky Wildcats get win over a scrappy Vanderbilt Commodores team for their sixth SEC win of the season, 71-62.

It was a pretty ‘meh’ game for Kentucky as the offense struggled heavily in the second half and the defense could not seem to contain the three point shooting, as Vandy hit nine threes this game.

However, Tyrese Maxey quietly led the Cats in scoring with 17 and Nick Richards had 15 points and 11 boards, all coming in the second half. The team goes as Nick Richards goes.

As much as the game was bad, it was a typical trap-game for Kentucky sandwiched between Texas Tech and Auburn, but they pulled it out.

Now we have Gameday at Auburn on Saturday.
