Goodwin hits both. Wow.
Goodwin fouled by Henderson. Nerds everywhere protest.
Harrow the finger roll. WCS is imploring the Rupp crowd!
Cauley-Stein is a man tonight.
I can say with certainty that if a UK player came off the bench, Cal would be charged with an NCAA Violation.
So is the rule that bench players have to interfere in the scrum or is it just that they’re off the bench?
Jawing and pushing after the dead ball there. Not sure what’s going on here.
Not sure what started that little mini scrum but I like it.
Mays with the HUGE 3
Gut check time for the Cats.
Fuller is a PG
Poythress. And one. Finally.
We are self destructing…until Poythress And-1 that is
UK’s last FG was at 11:58
Ref needed a little help for that call.
The game has gotten sloppy, but Cats are in control.
58-48 Cats with 7:30 left
Wiltjer works hard in the post to draw the foul on Odom. Hits both FTs. 53-41 Cats.
Mays with a 3 to beat the shot-clock, and its 49-37 Cats. Josh Harrelson comes out to do the Y in front of a rocking Rupp Arena crowd.
Archie Goodwin’s lat 3 games: 18 points on 7/24 shooting. Archie after one half tonight: 12 points on 6/9 shooting.
He sliced the Cats on both of Vandy’s final possessions.
Mark it down, Fuller will play all the second half
Cats lead 42-34 at half
Goodwin with the miss. Fouled of course but no call.
And Fuller parted the UK waters.
WCS with his second foul; an offensive. Jon Hood in.
Cats are huge down low on the blocks
Polson in for Harrow. Wiltjer fighting for position. Vandy the other way.
Even Vandy’s ball players look like nerds…
Best play Harrow has made all year by far.
Wow. Harrow and 1. Misses foul shot, gets rebound, hits Wiltjer for 3. UK leads 42-30
Harrow with the big And-1 on that drive. Harrow with the scream! Missed FT, kicked own rebound to Wiltjer for 3!
Cauley-Stein with the strip. UK the other way.
Vandy called a time out while simultaneously faux jumping. Cal was pissed.
Poythress with the block. Cauley-Stein called for the foul. Johnson down with a shoulder injury.
lol. WCS with another offensive board and is fouled.
Correction, no time out taken by UK. Net was stuck.
Love that Bill Dance and his UT hat is shown during the time out of a Vandy game.
Calipari is going to bust a blood vessel if Vandy keeps hitting 3′s.
Harrow is making a habit of tough shots. He’s killing it.
Johnson made us look silly on that drive. Missed the shot but going to the line.
Archie is feeling it tonight. Double figures with the long 2. Wiltjer with the block the other way and Goodwin back with the lay in.

And just like that, Poythress with his second foul.

WCS with the FT jumper. 29-20
Mays misses the 3 but gets his own rebound
The ball ping ponged its way to WCS for the lay in
Wiltjer with the foul that sent Jackson out of bounds. Make the fouls worth it.
Odom hits a 3. Really keeping vandy in this
Block by Henderson on Wiltjer. Hence the airball.
Harrow with the miss but the jumper was a good one regardless
Archie is playing so efficient. Love it.
Another turnover by Vandy. UK’s defense really has them scrambling right not
Polson nearly blocked a 7-footer. Foul, but still. Ain’t scared
After Vandy’s FT, 23-13 UK
Great ball movement around to WCS who gets stripped. Vandy the other way and a foul on Polson.

Rupp hasn’t been this loud for a long time.
Long strides from WCS leads to a slam and Vandy Time Out.
Polson better watch the jump-bump with WCS…
Bulldog D leads to a breakaway dunk by Cauley-Stein!! Man can he run!
Polson with UK’s first 3 of the night
Kentucky’s perimeter D is monster tonight
And Poythress can’t seem to find the basket on the FT’s
Maybe the fans writing off the team was Cal’s plan all along
I hope so. I forgot just how terrible Vandy is.
Hopefully, being written off by the fan base has helped.
It looks like the Cats are out of that funk from Knoxville
Poythress fouled on the drive in the lane but missed the shot. Two FT’s coming.
Polson is a bulldog on the ball pressure
Odom missed both technical FT’s
BS Technical on WCS for hanging on the rim. He only smacked the glass. Stupid.

Wouldn’t hurt my feelings for these Cats to be a little salty and erupt against Mizzou…
Harrow blocked OOB then a little shove for the Vandy player. Love that.
Harrow playing very aggressive thus far.
Rupp erupting after lob dunk from mays to goodwin
Mays to Goodwin for the flush!
WTH Harrow?!?! That’s what we need.
Harrow drives and lays it in.
Lefty something by WCS. Front court is stepping up big early on.
Poythress is sending Ken Howlett a message…
That was a nice move by Goodwin. Tough, but under-control shot. Need more of those
