In the 10 games Jarred Vanderbilt has played since coming back from his preseason leg injury, Kentucky is 4-6 and suffered a four-game losing streak — the longest in coach John Calipari’s tenure at UK.
However, Vanderbilt’s emergence continues to be seen as the key to any hopes UK has for a late-season run.
The 6-9 Vanderbilt is averaging 4.9 points, 6.9 rebounds and 1.0 assists per game in 15.1 minutes of play. But he’s shooting just 34 percent from the field and has had trouble making shots other than dunks.
