Kentucky Completely Dominates Vanderbilt 87-52

Kentucky sprinted out to an early lead and never looked back.  After a dominant first half, the Cats put their foot on the gas to cruise to a 35-point victory over Vanderbilt.

Winless in the SEC, Vanderbilt could not do anything right in the first half.  Kentucky forced 14 turnovers while limiting Vanderbilt to only 15 points (5-of-20 from the field).

While Vandy floundered, P.J. Washington feasted.  The sophomore had 18 points and ten rebounds in the first 20 minutes to outscore Vanderbilt at halftime.  He finished the game with 26 points and 12 boards.

Vanderbilt showed a little life out of the halftime locker room, making five of their first seven shots to score 13 points before the first media timeout, but they were quickly silenced.  Kentucky made 55.6 percent of their field goals and knocked down 10-of-17 three-pointers to create a lead so large, Jimmy Dykes was singing county music in the middle of the broadcast.

After three straight wins over ranked opponents, Kentucky kept the momentum rolling in Nashville. They aren’t slowing down anytime soon.

      Cal will still lose to some random team in the tournament dont worry. And im tired of hearing Matt say ” if we get another coach well suck” . Im sure another guy can come in here and win 1 title in 10 years. Tubby did it

      Hey banana I read you were a head from Western Kentucky…me too. Did you ever go see the Dead at the Omni in Atlanta or the Freedom Hall shows?

      Tubby did, but then spent 9 straight years failing to get past the Elite 8.

      Bigoldslatermedic just keeps on posting one stupid comment after another.

  4. Who up to call Matt? In the pregame he was literally begging folks to stay up and call.

    Damn that was fun! And I love the fact that Cal left EJ, Nick, Quickley and Baker in for about the last 8 minutes of the game.

    Do you all know how many scores keldon and reed had going into the half? Zero frickin points, think about that!

    I love it!!! Why can’t every game be this stress free and happy? I would love to see both Quickly and Nick now consistently positively impacting the game. Providing a solid pickup when a spark is needed. Immanuel has a good enough shot; he needs to be the guy that can hit a three when we need one. Nick had improved so much over the last three games, IMO. Continue to get blocks and rebounds like a beast!

      We’re not gonna beat everybody by 40 points and win the national championship every year. Come back to the real world…

      It is program first and always has been under Cal. But that’s something stooges like you….who isn’t a fan but is just a troll…doesn’t understand.
