Syndication: The Courier-Journal Matt Stone/Courier Journal / USA TODAY NETWORK

The No. 18 Kentucky Wildcats are back in action tonight and will look to get a winning streak going in conference play when traveling down to Nashville to face the Vanderbilt Commodores.

Kentucky (12-3, 2-1 SEC) bounced back from last week’s loss at LSU by pounding Georgia for a 92-77 victory on Saturday. The Wildcats found itself up by just three at the break but found its bearings in the second half and pulled away for the double-digit win. Oscar Tshiebwe had another dominant effort down low, putting up 29 points and 17 rebounds in the win.

Vanderbilt (9-5, 1-1 SEC) is looking to get back into the win column tonight after suffering a 72-70 loss to South Carolina on Saturday. Down two in the closing seconds, Scotty Pippen Jr. ran into a double team and wasn’t able to get a shot up as the Gamecocks escaped Nashville with a win. Myles Stute led the Commodores with 19 points.
