Kentucky Blog: Even An Ugly Win Makes Us Smile

Tonight’s game at Vanderbilt was ugly, sure, but at SB Nation’s Kentucky blog, fans are smiling regardless. From their recap:

The Vanderbilt Commodores gave Kentucky all they had. Neither team could shoot the ball from the perimeter, so it was an ugly-looking game with lots of fouls, lots of physical play from both teams, and lots of big plays from both teams. John Jenkins made an amazing three to put Vandy back in the game after UK took a 4-point lead in the game. Great effort by the Commodores, overall, despite uncharacteristically poor shooting.

This was an important game for both teams, and for Kentucky fans, this is sweet revenge for the way that the Commodores have been able to largely dominate Kentucky for the last four years. It wasn’t a 40-point blowout that Wildcat fans might have wished for in our wildest dreams (payback for the depredations heaped upon UK a couple of years ago in this same arena), but it was more than enough to put a big smile on my face and a celebratory libation in my hand.
