Commodores, Wildcats looking to close strong

AP Sports Writer

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Wildcats view Saturday's game against Vanderbilt as the first step toward salvaging their season.

The Wildcats (1-8, 0-6 Southeastern Conference) are mired in a 7-game losing streak and haven't done many things right during their skid. They would like to start reversing that trend against the Commodores (4-4. 2-3).

Winning all of their remaining games is considered crucial to embattled coach Joker Phillips' future at Kentucky. But that's expecting a lot of the struggling Wildcats. Vanderbilt, Samford (5-3) and Tennessee (3-4) all have better records.

Still, after hitting a low point in a 33-10 loss to Missouri, the Wildcats believe the Commodores represent the first of 3 chances to end their frustration.
