Considered vulnerable after needing overtime to win its first two conference games, top-ranked Kentucky appears to have reclaimed its edge following dominant wins over Missouri and Alabama.
The Wildcats (17-0, 4-0 Southeastern Conference) will aim to keep it going against struggling Vanderbilt on Tuesday night.
Kentucky’s hot shooting and strong defense have keyed consecutive routs of the Tigers and Crimson Tide by a combined 71 points. The Wildcats have shot 48 percent or better in consecutive games and held both squads to a combined of 6 of 36 (17 percent) from behind the arc.
Those efforts have contributed to the program’s fourth-best start ever. The Wildcats’ goal: maintaining that roll against the Commodores (11-6, 1-3), who have lost three straight since beating Auburn on Jan. 6.
