Cats vs. Dores tonight in the Music City.

Wildcat Mascot Drew Brown - Sea of Blue

It’s Kentucky Wildcats gameday as tonight the No. 18 ranked Cats will make the trip south to the Music City to take on the Vanderbilt Commodores with tip-off slated for a 7:00 pm ET tip-off on ESPN.

Kentucky travels to Nashville fresh off a 92-77 home win over Georgia that saw freshman Ty Ty Washington step in at the point guard position with Sahvir Wheeler out and dish out a single-game program record 17 assists.

However, with their loss to LSU last Tuesday, the Cats dropped two spots to No. 18 in the latest AP Poll and will be seeking their first true road game victory of the season at Vanderbilt after losing on the road in Baton Rouge and in South Bend earlier this season to Notre Dame.

Vanderbilt, who has been the laughingstock of the SEC the last three seasons, is much improved this winter as they are currently 9-5 overall and knocked off a strong Arkansas team back on January 4 in their SEC opener. On Saturday, the Commodores fell at home to South Carolina 72-70 on Saturday, putting them at 1-1 in conference play.
