Southeastern Conference

'THE best team in the country'? Kentucky looks the part in rout of Vandy

After Kentucky buried his team, Vanderbilt Coach Bryce Drew praised the longtime Caesar of Southeastern Conference basketball.

UK Coach John Calipari tried to tap the brakes on the inevitable runaway enthusiasm generated by such a victory.

If it had been a boxing match, Vandy’s manager would have thrown in the towel at halftime after the Commodores had been held to 15 points.

The opening 20 minutes were as ugly or enjoyable (depending on your rooting interest) as the numbers suggested.

But a noticeable number of Vandy fans had departed Memorial Gym by the third television timeout.

7 Kentucky played at Vanderbilt within the same seven-day period, Calipari cautioned against drawing conclusions by comparing scores.
