Vanderbilt falls in SEC Semis, 76-62 to Arkansas

Villanova Wildcats forward Kris Jenkins celebrates with guard Donte DiVincenzo

The SEC wraps up its conference tournament on Sunday at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville with a showdown between perennial conference power Kentucky, and longtime conference rival Arkansas. Kentucky (28-5) has won 10 in a row and are in search of its third straight SEC Tournament championship. After the Crimson Tide cut the deficit to 58-57 with 6:49 left, Fox scored 11 of Kentucky's next 13 points to push the Wildcats back on top 71-63 with 1:33 to play. So, I think it's just a combination of guys getting comfortable in what we're doing and trusting one another.

HARTFORD, Conn. - No. 12 SMU had been beating opponents by an average of 15 points a game this season and coach Tim Jankovich thought his team needed a test. The Razorbacks forced four ties and six lead changes in the first half, but a 9-0 Kentucky run to end the half gave the Wildcats a 42-30 advantage at the break. So Monk finding that shot and Fox becoming an even more unsafe slicing scorer is critical to Cats' survival in their upcoming games.

Unfortunately, I do not see that upset happening. "If I get shots before the game, I just have a good game or have a better flow". For Kentucky, Bam Adebayo is coming off a double-double (13 points, 10 boards) against Georgia and had a 14 points, seven rebound game against Alabama earlier.

Senior guard Dominique Hawkins finished with a career-high 14 points and was named to the All-SEC Tournament team.

This is Calipari's fourth straight season with 27 or more wins.

That position is a near-lock to be the first 15-loss team ever taken as an at-large selection to the NCAA Tournament.

"What a tremendous effort, a team win", Arkansas coach Mike Anderson said.

The game got heated in the final two minutes of the second half. "We talked about going off the dribble and scoring, and we did that".

"We're starting to click now because we're starting to mature, and it's showing", Adebayo said.

IOWA STATE 80, WEST VIRGINIA 74: The Cyclones defeated West Virginia for the program's third Big 12 tournament championship in four years in a game at Kansas City, Mo. It will play eighth-ranked Kentucky, a 79-74 victor against Alabama, for the second time in three years today.

Vanderbilt was able to stay with the Arkansas Razorbacks for a half Saturday in the SEC Tournament semifinals. "Make those plays and maybe we are going to the last minute of the game with a one point lead and have an opportunity to win".

Semi Ojeleye, the AAC Player of the Year, added 17 points for SMU (29-4), which will meet either CT or No. 15 Cincinnati Sunday for the tournament title and the conference's automatic berth to the NCAA Tournament.
