Recapping Kentucky's big senior night win over Vanderbilt

03/01/2017 06:27 PM

Kentucky trailed by as many as 19 points in the first half and 13 points in the second half, but they kept fighting to beat Vanderbilt 73-67 on senior night. This was UK’s biggest comeback win in the John Calipari era—and the biggest since 1997 when UK trailed, guess who, Vanderbilt by 22 at one point. The Cats have now won seven straight as they improve to 25-5 overall and 15-2 in conference play. With the win, Kentucky clinches at least a share of the regular season title and will be the number one seed in next week’s SEC tournament.

Bradley McKee joins Clayton Abernathy to break down the game.
