Kentucky’s basketball team looked different last night. They smiled. They celebrated together. They showed energy and effort. They weren’t perfect – a 74-70 win over a struggling Vanderbilt team won’t figure prominently on the Cats’ NCAA Tournament resume – but it was plucky. The team had a little edge (and enjoyment) that it has been missing, especially since Nerlens Noel went down with a season-ending ACL injury.
