The Cats look to make it back-to-back wins in Nashville

NCAA Basketball: Vanderbilt at Kentucky Arden Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Kentucky has only put back-to-back wins together once this season.

That’s a weird thing to say, but nevertheless, here we are and Kentucky has a chance to do that tonight as they take the floor in Nashville against the Vanderbilt Commodores.

The Commodores sit in last place in the SEC, at 2-8 in the conference and 6-10 overall. However, the Commodores are coming off a dominant 72-51 win over Mississippi State on Saturday.

The Commodores came out firing from three-point land on Saturday, knocking down 10 threes in the first half on their way to victory.

Of course, that last win streak Kentucky had included a win over Vanderbilt in Lexington. In that win, Olivier Sarr made a living at the free throw line, knocking down 14/17 from the line and Davion Mintz hit a clutch three-pointer with a minute to go.

Kentucky is fighting for position in the SEC Tournament and a win could move the Cats to 6-8 in conference, good for 8th in the conference.

More praise for Drake Jackson.
