Coming back from down 19 points to hot shooting Vanderbilt, Kentucky slowly chipped away at the lead and took the game in the final minutes, beating the Commodores, 73-67.
Malik Monk couldn’t find his shot through most of the game, but made two long balls when Kentucky needed them down the stretch, en route to his game-high 27 points.
Derek Willis, who also struggled with his shot, played a huge role in the win on the defensive end, of all places.
