LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky twin guards Aaron and Andrew Harrison combined for 11 points down the stretch that were key in helping the top-ranked Wildcats hold off pesky Vanderbilt 65-57 on Tuesday night.
The Wildcats (18-0, 5-0 Southeastern Conference) didn't lead by double digits until early in the second half, and that 45-33 advantage lasted briefly as the Commodores (11-7, 1-4) began answering from the perimeter to stay within several possessions of Kentucky.
Five combined 3-pointers by Riley LaChance (16 points) and Matthew Fisher-Davis (13) helped Vanderbilt pull within 58-54 with 2:36 left. Aaron Harrison responded with a big shot from long range 27 seconds later, and Andrew Harrison followed with a jumper with 1:07 left to provide some space.
Aaron Harrison added two more free throws to finish with 14 points while Andrew Harrison had five points for Kentucky, which shot 44 percent.
Dakari Johnson added 10 points for the Wildcats.
