After Missouri took an 11-10 advantage with 12:35 left in the first half, Herro scored seven points in a 42-second span to give Kentucky the lead for good. "I think we guarded them well, and I think we disrupted a lot of their sets and stuff like that". "I feel like we had a sense of entitlement, but we now realize we've got to compete. You have those nights". Tennessee leads the SEC by one game over LSU and No. 4 Kentucky (22-4, 11-2).

Vanderbilt is trying to avoid its 14th consecutive loss, which would match the longest skid in school history. With one game left against the Volunteers this season, the Wildcats still have a chance to finish as a number one seed, but they can't afford to lose to teams like Missouri.

Tennessee: The Vols struggled in the opening minutes of the second half for a second straight game, only this time it wasn't quite as costly. "Losing's not fun. It brings out the worst".

Vanderbilt shot just 32.1 percent (18 of 56) overall and 23.5 percent (8 of 34) in the second half.

Tennessee led 36-22 late in the first half, but then scored two points over a stretch that lasted almost nine minutes, allowing Vanderbilt to creep back into the game.

Tennessee coach Rick Barnes said he liked the way his team responded after the loss to Kentucky, even if the score didn't necessarily reflect it. "But we're a good offensive team and we'll have our good nights".

Kyle Alexander scored in double figures six times in eight games from December 15 to January 15 and had a 14-rebound performance and a 17-rebound effort during that stretch. Their first loss came in a high scoring affair where they let Arkansas scored 90 points by shooting 13-for-24, 54.2 percent, from the three-point line.

Jordan Bowden has averaged 3.5 points and has shot 2 of 13 overall and 0 of 6 from 3-point range in his last two games.

Kentucky's defense, which ranked among the top 10 nationally in terms of adjusted efficiency coming into the game, was the star of the game through the first 20 minutes and the Wildcats led by as many as 20, at 48-28, early in the second half. Vanderbilt's own issues on offense prevented the Commodores from getting any closer. "We're just hoping to knock it down soon".

The Commodores shot 10 of 21 from 3-point range against Tennessee before falling 88-83 in overtime on January 23, but only one of Vanderbilt's seven losses since then has been decided by less than nine points.

Despite averaging 13 points per game this season and scoring 21 points in the first matchup, Tennessee held Vanderbilt guard Saban Lee to eight points on the night. But the Commodores never got Tennessee's lead below four in the second half due to their own struggles on offense.

Washington is Kentucky's first victor of the Oscar Robertson National Player of the Week honor since Kevin Knox won it January 31, 2018, following UK's 17-point comeback at West Virginia.

After holding a nine-point edge at half, Tennessee continued to harass Vanderbilt defensively.

Tennessee's players wore T-shirts with the message "Donate Life" during pregame warmups as part of an initiative to encourage fans to become registered organ and tissue donors. A workmanlike victory over Vanderbilt on Tuesday didn't do enough to clear away the fallout from what transpired at Rupp Arena. "We hadn't lost since Thanksgiving going into that (Kentucky) game".

Tennessee could use more production from a couple of key performers. Satkowiak received a standing ovation after a video detailing his health situation played on the scoreboard at halftime.
