Setting The Stage: UK vs. Vanderbilt

UK looks to be back on track for blowing through the rest of league play after stubbing its toe out of the gate against Ole Miss and Texas A&M.

Is the coaching staff glad the Cats learned their lesson early as the team continues toward perfection?

Against Alabama down in Tuscaloosa, Kentucky was able to spread out the Tide defense more than it did in the last few games.

An extra man on the wing and pure shooting from deep busted up the lane a bit and allowed for some easier offense for the Cats.

Obviously, that’s something the coaches would like to see continue tonight.

The all-time series record against Vandy sits at 139-46 entering tonight’s matchup, including a 60-7 mark in Lexington.

Coach Cal is 9-3 against the Commodores while VU head man Kevin Stallings is 11-21 against the Cats.

Win or lose, Coach Cal will be the winningest coach in Rupp in his first 100 games.  Already at 95 wins, that’s one better than Rick Pitino’s 94 victories in his first 100 tries at home.

But of course, none of the above means anything when things tip off tonight.
