Sunday Quickies: On to Vanderbilt Edition

The Cats prepare for the second of back-to-back road games

NCAA Basketball: Vanderbilt at Kentucky Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

After a double-digit win on the road against Tennessee yesterday, the Cats will play the second part of their back-to-back road games with another matchup in the state of Tennessee, this time against Vanderbilt.

The Cats took the first matchup against the Commodores in Lexington a couple weeks ago, taking down Vanderbilt by a score of 71-62 behind a 17-point effort from Tyrese Maxey and a 15 point, 11 rebound performance from Nick Richards.

Vanderbilt gave Kentucky a lot of problems in that matchup, taking a lead into halftime and into the second half before the Cats went on a run to take the lead and avoid the upset.

Nick Richards only played five minutes in the first half due to foul trouble, so keeping Richards out of foul trouble in this matchup will be key for Kentucky.

The Wildcats and the Commodores will tip off at 7 p.m. on ESPN.
