On Tuesday night at Vanderbilt, Kentucky had one of its most balanced offensive efforts of the season so far. Five Cats scored in double figures as UK beat Vandy for the 14th consecutive time, 69-53, inside venerable Memorial Gymnasium.
The last time the Cats had five players score in double figures was in the Dec. 3 win over Michigan in London. Tuesday’s game was the third such game this season.
Antonio Reeves led the Cats with 16 points, while Oscar Tshiebwe had 15 points and 13 rebounds. Jacob Toppin had his fourth double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds, while CJ Fredrick and Cason Wallace each had 10 points for UK.
Reeves scored in double figures for the sixth consecutive game. In four of those six, he has scored at least 16 points.
The five players in double figures were also very efficient in Tuesday’s win. The quintet combined to shoot 28 of 47 from the field (59.6 percent) including six of 15 (40 percent) from behind the arc.
