Kentucky defeated Vanderbilt twice during the regular season by scores of 77-70 and 78-66. Kentucky is the better team in this matchup and Vanderbilt should have lost to Alabama if they Crimson Tide knew how to be consistent. Kentucky also has a pretty big rebounding advantage in this matchup, which should allow Tshiebwe to dominate once again. Vanderbilt is overmatched in this game and I like the Wildcats.
