The Wrath of the Commodores

The lesson I learned tonight is that Vanderbilt is really good when they're mad. After being slighted with a 10 seed in the latest Bracketology and after losing to UK in 2 OT's in Lexington in January, the Commodores got their revenge tonight. In a staggering, unrelenting decimation of the Wildcats, the Commodores maintained a 30+ point lead most of the game and all of the second half. Kentucky was held to 11 points in the first half (the program's lowest in a half in the shot clock era), and lost by 41 (largest margin of defeat ever in SEC play). Clearly, Vandy's pretty good, and all talk of Kentucky and their 6 game winning streak and being on the bubble can end riiiight... NOW. That's the biggest statement victory I've seen in a long time.

Other notes:
UNC is not a top ten team without Lawson. Since Lawson's injury, UNC has a loss to Duke, a 2 OT victory at home, and a 1 point win over the worst team in the ACC.

Purdue is legit, and they might run the table in the Big Ten to go 17-1 in conference. At Indiana in a week is the toughest test remaining.
