Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Vanderbilt basketball, coming off a 72-51 win at Mississippi State on Saturday, now gets a 6-13 team on the schedule tonight that you were only intimidated by because it has the name “Kentucky” on the uniform. Kentucky won the first matchup back on January 5 when Max Evans’ game-tying three-point attempt rimmed out at the buzzer; the rematch will be at Memorial Gym, and just in time for Kentucky to come to town, Vanderbilt has announced that a limited number of students will be allowed in the gym. (If any of them show up wearing blue, we riot.) Anyway, game time is 6:00 PM CT and the game will be televised on the SEC Network.

Vanderbilt swimming is at the SEC Championships, which open tonight in Athens, Georgia.

SEC Basketball Schedule

Kentucky at Vanderbilt (6:00 PM CT, SEC Network): Vanderbilt +3.5, Under 142.5
