Less than two weeks after nearly coming back from a 17 point second half deficit against Louisville, UK was almost on the losing end of a similar comeback against Vanderbilt Thursday night.
Last year UK had some of their toughest games, including a loss in the SEC tournament championship game, against Vanderbilt. Last night was more of the same. The difference is that Vanderbilt lost three players to the NBA and own several conspicuous losses this year, including a loss to Marist by...
