Home Teams (Cats, Hogs) Win Again

Following last night’s wins by Kentucky and Arkansas in their home arenas, SEC home teams are now 30-11 on the young season.  That’s a 73% winning percentage and four of those road wins have come from Kentucky.

Lesson: If you’re not Kentucky, your odds of winning on the road are awfully long.


Kentucky 69, Tennessee 44

What do you get when a team with few scoring options ventures into the “we never lose here” arena of a team with sensational defenders?  A beatdown.  Kentucky let it be known with an early scuffle that they would not be out-toughed by the Vols in Rupp last night.  They also happened to knock down their first 11 shots of the game en route to the 25-point win.

Anthony Davis had a ridiculous seven blocked shots bringing his NCAA-best total to 108 or the season.


Arkansas 82, Vanderbilt 74

Mike Anderson needs to figure out a way to play all of the Razorbacks’ games at home.  The Hogs remained perfect at home with an upset Vanderbilt, a team that came in having won 11 of 12 games.  Vandy played well and actually held a three-point second half lead before Arkansas got red hot.

The Hogs hit six out of seven three-pointers in a single stretch as they turned a 40-37 deficit into a 59-46 lead.  You have to wonder just how good Arkansas would have been this year had Marshawn Powell not been sidelined before the season with an injury.
