Vanderbilt's back in the SEC race after trouncing Kentucky, 93-51, on Tuesday night Here's random observations from the game.

Time (CST)

8:01- Getting ready for tipoff. Are the 3-straight wins by VU a fluke or are bigger things coming? We'll soon find out.

1st Half

8:06- It's a tip and controlled by VU. Foster scores, 2-0 VU!

8:07- Ogilvy fouled while shooting. Makes 1 of 2. 3-0 VU.

8:09- 3 by Uk. Tied.

8:09- Ogilvy scores! 5-3 VU.

8:10- Ogilvy fouled. Neltner scores on inbound. 7-3 VU.

8:10- Nice no call on Ogilvy over the back.

8:12- Nice D by VU. Shot clock violation on UK.

8:12- Neltner scores. VU 9-3.

8:13- Neltner for 3!! VU 12-3.

8:16- Foster for 3!! A good start for Vandy. VU 15-3.

8:16- UK gets a lucky bounce. VU 15-5.

8:18- UK hits 1 of 2 FTs. VU 17-6.

8:18- Ogilvy for 2. VU 19-6.

8:20- Two quick fouls on VU. Officials trying to swing things in the Cat's favor.

8:20- Patterson walks. VU ball.

8:22- Foster inside for 2. VU 21-6.

8:27- Metcalfe gets 2 free throws. VU 23-6.

8:29- Good VU defense wasted by foul but VU holds on D again.

8:30- VU suffers first turnover of game.

8:33- Great pass from Beal to Foster for a lay in. VU 25-6.

8:39- Jermaine Beal fouled by Patterson, this third. Beal make 1 of 2. VU 26-6.

8:40- After another defensive stand Andre Walker scores on a reverse. VU 28-6. TO Kentucky.

8:42- Foster with another inside bucket. Foster has 11. VU 30 UK 6. Can Vandy hold them to under 10 in the 1st half?

8:43- Ross Nelter for 2 more! This is really getting ugly. . . for Kentucky. VU 32 UK 6.

8:45- UK hits two free throws. VU 32 UK 8.

8:46- Neltner fouled. Makes 2 of 2. VU 34 UK 8.

8:46- UK another turnover. 5 second call.

8:56- VU shot clock violation.

8:59- Neltner misses a 3 at the buzzer. Halftime: VU 41 UK 11.

What an incredible showing by the Commodores in the 1st half. Brings back memories of some big wins over UK in the 80s. If Vandy can keep this level of play up over the next 4 games they'll be gauranteed a winning SEC record. The big question in the second half is when will Stallings call off the dogs? He shouldn't do it too early. I say get it up to about 40 with 8 minutes remaining and then start putting in walkons and reserves.
