Tuesday Headlines: Vandy Gameday Edition

Will the Cats continue the winning streak in Nashville?

Antonio Reeves Isamu Haynes-Sunayama - A Sea Of Blue

Good morning BBN!

It’s game day for the Kentucky Wildcats, as they travel to Nashville for a date with the Vanderbilt Commodores.

In what will be a late night at Memorial Gymnasium, it will also be another test as this Kentucky team looks to round the corner.

Sitting at 13-6 (4-3) on the season, the Cats have gotten hot as of late, riding a three-game winning streak into Tuesday night's matchup. The only problem is playing at Vandy is never easy.

The Commodores have played a tough SEC schedule over the last two weeks, facing off with Tennessee, Alabama, and Missouri. Jerry Stackhouse’s squad has scratched and clawed their way to making each game tougher than most would think.

After a physical matchup on Saturday against Texas A&M, this could shape up to be the ultimate trap game for this growing Kentucky team. With the rotation shrinking, and John Calipari finding his go-to lineup, the word of the game will be simple: continue.

Fight has been shown as the Cats have pulled themselves off the mat. Another big week this week, and they could be right back in the top 25.

With Kansas coming to Rupp on Saturday, players and fans don't need to look ahead. The Cats will need to bring their A-game tonight in Nashville, even against a short-handed Vanderbilt team.
