Kentucky shot 61.3 percent the first half on the way to a 42-34 halftime lead over Vanderbilt at Rupp Arena. Archie Goodwin and Ryan Harrow have both climbed out of their recent funks. Goodwin has 12 points. Harrow has 10. And Willie Cauley-Stein has a dozen points for Kentucky.

But someone needs to guard Vanderbilt’s Rod Odom. He hit his first five three-point attempts and has 14 points for the Commodores. Vanderbilt shot 41.7 percent the first half. The visitors scored two baskets in the final 42 seconds to cut the lead to eight at the half.

UK has played well the first half, but considering its shooting percentage, you would expect the Cats to be up by more.
