Cats Control the Commodores, Win 76-57

After Thursday’s big win in Arkansas, the Cats built on that momentum to pummel Vanderbilt.  One of their toughest SEC matchups on paper, Kentucky kept them from keeping it close in another dominating performance.

Vanderbilt’s pair of 7-footers were not a problem for Alex Poythress.  He started the game with a solid up-and-under.  The good start was no fluke, playing powerful in the post throughout the game to finish with 16 points on 8-10 shooting.

Jamal Murray had another slow shooting start before hitting a hot streak in the second half, scoring 9 points in 2:15, finishing with 19.  Tyler Ulis had another casual 20+ point performance, leading all scorers with 21.

Most importantly, UK played together as a team, committing only 7 turnovers on offense while holding Vanderbilt under 35% from the floor on defense.

After the last two games, it looks like this team is finally hitting their stride.

    If not for vandy’s 6th, 7th, and 8th men, this would have been a massacre.
    The Commodores hit 16 shots from the floor.
    For the game.
    The whole game.

    Glad Duquesne and their head coach got some serious love on the 4-letter network, what a classy guy.
