Vanderbilt hosts SEC game rematch

Vanderbilt team ready for the game

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP/The Loop) — John Calipari isn’t sure if any of his Wildcats even know Vanderbilt beat Kentucky for theSoutheastern Conference tournament title the last time the teams met.

Commodores coach Kevin Stallings says it’s best everyone moves on.

Vanderbilt handed Kentucky its last loss March 11 before the Wildcats went on to win the program’s eighth national title.

That tournament championship meant a lot to Vanderbilt — it was the school’s first in 61 years. That’s why some fans will be getting replicas of the title ring Thursday night when the Commodores open their SEC schedule against the visiting Wildcats.

But the coaches, the school names on the front of the jerseys and a couple players are about all that remain the same from that game.
