There were no eye-popping statistics, few individual performances of note. Nothing and no one was singularly spectacular in No. 14 Kentucky’s 71-62 win Saturday at Vanderbilt.
Maybe that’s not exciting. But maybe it’s OK.
“I think we played really good as a team, and that’s been one of the biggest things this year,” said sophomore [db]Willie Cauley-Stein[/db], who led UK with 15 points. “The word is we’re not a good team and we’ve got selfish guys, but the last couple days in practice we’ve been getting closer, basketball-wise, as a team.”
For much of this season, the Wildcats (12-3, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) have looked more like a collection of talent than a collective with a common cause. And though UK hardly was sharp much of the afternoon at Memorial Gymnasium, it at least looked united.
