LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - The No. 18 Kentucky Wildcats improved to 13-3 on the season after a 78-66 win over Vanderbilt (9-6) in Nashville Tuesday night.

Forward Oscar Tshiebwe had yet another monster night, picking up his 12th double-double of the season. The junior finished with 30 points and 13 rebounds, and shot 11-of-16 from the floor. The last UK player to have a 30-10 game was Patrick Patterson on Dec. 22, 2008 when he had 33 points and 11 rebounds against Tennessee State.

TyTy Washington finished with 15 points, four rebounds, four assists, a block, a steal and three turnovers.

The Commodores didn’t go quietly, though, going on a 16-0 run to finish out the game.

The Cats were again without guard Sahvir Wheeler, who suffered a neck injury at LSU.

Next matchup for UK is the Tennessee Volunteers in Lexington on Saturday, Jan. 15 at 1:00 p.m.
