When you think Vanderbilt basketball, you likely think of white guys shooting threes in a gym that bizarrely refuses to put its benches in reasonable places. And when you think of that, the thought quickly goes to former Vanderbilt player, Barry Goheen. Part of the Barry Brothers (along with our man Barry Booker), Goheen always seemed to play well against Kentucky and was a favorite of announcer Joe “String Music” Dean in the early days of JP.
So what about this Saturday? Well while fellow Kentucky Sports Radio host Mosley and I go to Peoria, Illinois to watch Wichita State play Bradley (and yes I am serious), Vanderbilt comes into Lexington to play Kentucky in a game the Cats need to continue their momentum. With lots of losses in the poll during the week, a win on Saturday could see the Cats seriously move up in the polls. I see the Cats and the Dores in a battle, with Vandy scaring the bejesus out of us for most of the game, but the Cats winning by ten, 78-68. What say you? And use this thread to discuss the game…and go see “Babel”….I am a big fan.
