Anchor Drop, January 11, 2022: Kentucky Tonight

Vanderbilt gets a visit from the Big Blue.

NCAA Basketball: Vanderbilt at Arkansas Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Vanderbilt welcomes Kentucky to Memorial Gym tonight, with the crowd likely to be ever bluer than it normally is when the Wildcats visit after a still-controversial move to bar students from Memorial Gym and then open their seats up for public sale. Game time is 6:00 PM CT, and the game will be televised on the SEC Network. The Wildcats are 12-3 overall and 2-1 in the SEC, with the most recent game being a 92-77 win over Georgia that was weirdly competitive for a half. The Hustler also has a game preview.

Vanderbilt bowling finished fourth place in the Stormin’ Blue and White Vegas Classic after beating Mount St. Mary’s to open Monday before dropping back-to-back matches against McKendree and Nebraska.

Congrats to Georgia on ending the neverending stream of 1980 jokes.
