The Kentucky Wildcats' bubble might have just burst.

After losing in a blowout at the hands of the Vanderbilt Commodores in the SEC tournament quarterfinals, Kentucky looks NIT-bound, while Vanderbilt will live to play another day, and is just two wins away from stealing an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament.

Vanderbilt was simply too good in this game, making seemingly all of their shots. The Commodores shot 50.0 percent from the field and 47.1 percent from three, completely dominating the Wildcats.

Kentucky simply couldn't put it together tonight, and the team falls to 4-4 without Nerlens Noel on the year. To make the NCAA tournament now would be ridiculous, but you can expect Kentucky to be given a high seed in the NIT.

 

FINAL SCORE: Vanderbilt 64, Kentucky 48
