Kentucky won the Southeastern Conference Tournament without Jarred Vanderbilt. Now it likely will have to win without Vanderbilt to stay alive in the NCAA Tournament.
The freshman forward injured his ankle in practice Tuesday and was not in uniform for any of UK’s three SEC tourney win. Kentucky coach John Calipari didn’t make it sound Monday like Vanderbilt would play Thursday when UK takes on Davidson in Boise, Idaho, or even Saturday if Kentucky advances to play either Arizona or Buffalo.
