Phew, That Was Close

In hindsight, we should have seen that let-down coming. In our minds we all thought, ‘But Vandy is so bad. Surely they can’t keep up with UK.’ Oh, how quickly we forgot Evansville and Utah.

After the emotional win at Texas Tech and ahead of a College GameDay trip to Auburn, the last thing UK needed was two quick fouls from Nick Richards. When he was sent to the bench, UK let Vanderbilt surge to a seven-point halftime lead. It got all the way up to ten before Kentucky snapped back to reality and went on a run.

The play that changed the game came from E.J. Montgomery. His ‘and one’ just before the under-12 timeout shrunk the Vandy lead to one and sent Dylan Disu to the bench with four fouls. A guy that had been killing the Cats, Disu handed the torch over to Nick Richards who abruptly stomped the Commodores.

Richards finished with 15 points and 11 rebounds, his ninth double-double of the season. Tyrese Maxey scored 10 of his team-high 17 points in the final six minutes of the game, Quickley chipped in 11 points, while Ashton Hagans threw in 12 points and six assists.

This Guy was the Real MVP

Rupp Arena is not known for being the most raucous atmosphere in college basketball. While the Cats slept walk through the start of the game, so did the crowd. One man brought the heat from start to finish. This guy wore a full checkerboard uniform to Rupp Arena. We need more of this energy inside the building.

Did Jerry Stackhouse Speak?

This is a serious question that needs a serious answer. In the two-hour college basketball broadcast, the former North Carolina Tar Heel and current Vanderbilt head coach was the focus of multiple cutaways. Not once did I spot him ever coaching his team on camera. At least Jason Garrett was seen clapping for the Dallas Cowboys. The SEC Network even went split-screen to show Stackhouse and he never uttered a word.

Vernon Hatton was the ‘Y’

Rupp did get rowdy to welcome back Vernon Hatton, the former All-American that helped the Wildcats take down Elgin Baylor’s Seattle squad in the 1958 National Championship. Hatton also lays claim to one of the most memorable shots in UK history, a half court heave that forced a third and decisive overtime to defeat Temple.

UK Women’s Hoops Back in Action

In the middle of a three-game stretch over six days, the Kentucky women’s basketball team is taking its talents to Columbia, Missouri tonight to take on the Tigers. Fresh off a seven-point win against the Auburn Tigers, UK missed Rhyne Howard for a significant portion of the second half with a finger injury. One of college basketball’s leading scorers is expected to be on the court when the ball is tipped at 7 p.m. ET on the SEC Network.

Part 1 of the Vick ’30 for 30′

Tonight ESPN’s best work will be on display when they premiere part one of the new ’30 for 30′ simply titled Vick. The Madden cheat code turned convicted felon’s up and down story is the perfect subject for a ’30 for 30.’ There’s so much to. get to it will air in two parts, beginning tonight at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN. Part two will be at the same time next Thursday. Bring your popcorn.
