Basketball: Vanderbilt Commodores 74, Kentucky Wildcats 83 -- Postgame Report

This wasn't the first time DJP has gone ezeli on opposing guards.

Two solid wins and a tough loss to the top-ranked team in the land. Certainly there's no shame in losing to Anthony Davis, and Vanderbilt can look to both of its losses to Kentucky and make a solid case that they point to this team being capable of playing on par with a top ten team, perhaps justifying that preseason hype. There are two important games this week -- senior night against the less than healthy Florida Gators and then a big rivalry game on the road in Knoxville, where you know the Volunteers would love to end the season with another statement win prior to heading into the SEC Tournament.
