Vanderbilt Vs. Kentucky Final Score: Commodores Pull Off Upset Over Wildcats, 71-64

A wild second half of Sunday's 2012 SEC Tournament championship between the undefeated in the conference's regular season Kentucky Wildcats and the upstart Vanderbilt Commodores led to arguably the biggest win in Commodores history. The Wildcats led 62-55 with five minutes to go, but the Commodores defense stepped up and only allowed two points the rest of the way. Vanderbilt's offense stepped up, hit key free throws and crashed the boards to secure the 71-64 win.

Terence Jones finished the game with 12 points and co-led the team along with Anthony Davis with 10 rebounds. Darius Miller led the Wildcats in scoring with 16 points on 7-for-17 shooting. Jeffery Taylor and Festus Ezeli led the Commodores in scoring with 18 and 17 points, respectively. Taylor also had 12 rebounds as well as two key first half 3-pointers.

Vanderbilt has predicted to be a No. 6 seed in SB Nation's latest bracketology rankings but could climb even higher after winning the SEC title, while Kentucky has already locked in the tournament's No. 1 overall seed.
