Kentucky has reached number one in the polls with a 24-1 record this season. Their only loss came by a single point at an improved Indiana Hoosiers team way back in early December. They had a close call back on January 14th in a 65-62 road SEC victory against a bad Tennessee team as a -9 ½ point favorite. A week later Alabama played them to a six point defeat at Kentucky. The Wildcats are coming off a victory to the Florida Gators by 20 points. The Wildcats will face an experienced Commodores team who returns five starters back. In their meeting at Vanderbilt last year the Commodores came away with the 81-77 home win as a +1 point underdog.

Vanderbilt has been somewhat of an underachieving team with a record of 17-7 on the season. They have already four losses on their home court with eleven wins. Recently they dropped a 78-77 overtime decision to Mississippi St as a -6 ½ point favorite. They broke a two game losing streak all on the road in their 76-61 home win to LSU on Wednesday night. The Commodores defense will need to tighten. The team allows 66 points a game and 42% shooting which is around the middle of the 300 plus clubs from major college basketball. That is not good for a team as experienced as Vanderbilt. In this nationally televised spotlight game, the Commodores experience could bring out their best effort of the season tonight at home against number one.
