of opdivo. tell your doctor about all your medical conditions, including immune system problems, or if you've had an organ transplant, or lung, breathing, or liver problems. a chance to live longer. ask your doctor if opdivo is right for you. bristol-myers squibb thanks the patients and physicians who participated in the opdivo clinical trial. hey tj, staring contest, me and you. go! you're going to flinch. your eyes are hurting. you're about to break. ughhh. gaaaa! there it was.
6:01 pm
introducing pizza hut's first $5 flavor menu. just $5 each when you order two or more. can i get pizza for the whole team? you got it mr. cuban! just five bucks each. wings and a hershey's cookie for five bucks each? yes. it's easy to say yes to our first ever $5 flavor menu. only at pizza hut. >> spero: time now to look at the capital one impact performance. >> doug: four minutes to go, six made threes, 12 made field goals -- he is a one-man wrecking crew. averaged 25 a game last five games in s.e.c. play. he's not only talented, he's also efficient. >> spero: already has two -- had two 30-point games on the season
6:02 pm
third on the year. his career high earlier this month in gainesville, 35 points, also had a 33-point outburst against ohio state. a game in which he had seven threes. the other thing he's done, doug, in this game, nine rebounds for kentucky as well. >> doug: he's a competitor, if you want to compare him to a player style-wise where he doesn't glow you away with his length and athleticism but blows you away with his athleticism and all around skill, people say brandon roy. >> spero: baldwin able to turn the corner and then swallowed up by matthews. ulis. labissiere bobbled it, missed a hook shot. marcus lee will replace labissiere. >> doug: wade baldwin with a head of steam going to the basket but how about hawkins.
6:03 pm
goaltending. that hit the backboard first. a fantastic block. >> spero: we expected intense. this has been as good as advertised. jones coming around the screen, never appeared to have it cleanly. we'll slow it down. kentucky down six. vanderbilt with a win climbs to within a game of first. everything but the finish. kentucky just one for its last nine. >> doug: wade baldwin is doing an outstanding job in jamal murray, everyone paying so much attention to murray, nobody is watching ulis. he had a run at will the rim. >> spero: vanderbilt struggled. one of their last seven.
6:04 pm
eight to shoot. kornet. baldwin. off balance. able to get it to the rim. but it's last touched by the commodores. >> doug: outstanding defense, marcus lee plays quality defense, four fouls without fouling. they've started switching on every screen but locking in on fisher-davis. >> spero: ulis. briscoe thought about it. outside, murray. briscoe from deep. kentucky stone called. >> doug: you're open by design
6:05 pm
you have to make isaiah briscoe make jump shots. that's quality defense knowing the scouting report. >> spero: vanderbilt, meantime, no points in three-plus minutes. 90 seconds left. shot clock at two. roberson. another desperation floater. murray. pass broken up by jones, and now kentucky in serious trouble. two free throws for the commodores coming up. >> doug: jeff roberson, you mentioned, leads the s.e.c. in free throw attempts.
6:06 pm
he puts his head down and shoots a floater with the shot clock running down. the most impressive part was kentucky ran their hammer play trying to get jamal murray the ball in the weak side corner for a three, and vanderbilt has done an excellent job of knowing that scouting report and taking it away. they've done a much better job on jamal murray in this last third of ballgame. >> spero: kornet, heady play, into the backcourt where fisker davis tracks it down and more seconds coming off the clock. whistle blown in the backcourt. double bonus. two more free throws for vanderbilt. third personal on ulis. as poythress helplessly looks on. asked calipari how he felt with
6:07 pm
he said nothing is guaranteed. we could lose our last three games. >> doug: they're not only playing tournament-caliber teams, at vanderbilt, at florida, l.s.u. at home but you're playing teams that are desperately in need of a victory, and you're their biggest game. and they're playing without derek willis. >> spero: ulis from deep. hasn't been his day. now five of 20 from the field is ulis. whistle blown underneath on vanderbilt. the commodores have been searching for their first signature win all season. they're finally going foget it. >> doug: this would cause vanderbilt fans or college basketball fans to say put them in. they are in the ncaa tournament. but that's not the way it works. you have tennessee coming in here. you have to win that tennessee game. then if you beat texas a&m on the road you're absolutely in.
6:08 pm
tennessee, win a game or two in the s.e.c. tournament but kevin stallings's team has turned it around from the abyss of the middle of the season. snoorp barring any late collapse vanderbilt would climb to within one game of first place in the s.e.c., hard to believe considering where this team was a couple of months ago. they could conceivably in the afternoon tie with the wildcats for first place. >> doug: a&m, has to go to auburn. a&m could conceivably win out and win the s.e.c. >> spero: what a wild season it's been in this conference. briscoe fouls lachance with 34.8
6:09 pm
nashville. >> doug: in the s.e.c., if you storm the floor your athletic department gets fined. and i believe you get away -- there is like one free pass, one court storming. i don't know if they have had a court storming. >> spero: this is what lies in front of kevin stallings and vanderbilt. home for tennessee. the big one to close at a&m in college station. >> doug: if there is a game that costs kentucky the s.e.c. crown it's probably the tennessee game. on the road. 21-point lead. >> spero: john calipari waving the white flag.
6:10 pm
fall to 21-8. >> doug: john calipari has taken his team off the floor and taken his players off the bench as a preemptive move in case of a court storming, sending his players away from the floor. >> spero: this was a three-point kentucky lead at halftime. ken stallings empties his bench. there is the kentucky bench. >> doug: when you say john calipari empties his bench, he literally emptied his bench. when you're kentucky and you have been to the final fours and won national championships, dominated the s.e.c. as they did last year, people storm the court any time they bite. >> spero: a precaution, as doug points out. mychal mulder. a little short. that's going to do it. >> doug: what a win for vanderbilt. they showed toughness, they showed grit, they showed defense and they showed themselves as a tournament team.
6:11 pm
kentucky to without a point over the last four minutes and wins it by a dozen. >> spero: and the post-game party already in full swing. vanderbilt to within a game of first place in the s.e.c. updated standings. kentucky and a&m, and what an interesting final week it will
6:12 pm
final score 74-62 vanderbilt. coming up tonight on cbs. "ncis: new orleans."

6:13 pm
there are no corners!
6:14 pm
>> greg: a reminder. tonight here on cbs. begins with "ncis: new orleans" and "ncis" followed by a new edition of "48 hours." coming up tonight, only cbs. welcome to "the road to the final four." greg gumbel in new york. the game you just watched, vanderbilt upsetting kentucky 74-62, joined by clark kellogg and seth davis. couple of things about this game. we said before it's a game that vanderbilt had to have, and number two, it's a kentucky offense that ran dry in the second half, led by three at halftime. >> clark: when you don't have the ability to score inside
6:15 pm
makes you tough when you have to rely on the perimeter shot and i thought vanderbilt did a nice job taking advantage of inside with damian jones. they made an adjustment on murray and nobody else stepped up for kentucky. >> seth: they watched you at halftime talking about giving damian jones the ball. he had 11 points in the second half, many of those early in the second half, vanderbilt seizing the momentum and i thought they had great team awareness defensively, tyler ulis went 0-7 from three-point range and another fly in the ointment for kentucky a consistent theme all year, 10 of 23 from the foul line. >> greg: the s.e.c. standings as they stand right now. how it alters your thinking coming down to selection sunday. >> seth: vanderbilt, as of today they're in, if they fall apart down the stretch, i think this vanderbilt team helped themselves today.
6:16 pm
of the standings along with south carolina, next week is going to be quite interesting to see who claims the top spot in terms of getting ready for the s.e.c. tournament. >> greg: you mentioned today. we will have highlights for you. we'll hit the scoreboard and bring it all to you. (horses) hey, looks like a whole new lawn. what'd you do? well thanks! went to lowe's. they gave me a few tips, pointed me toward the right fertilizer and voila! it made a huge difference. and it made me feel like i could do anything... you know what i'm going to do?
6:17 pm
a fitted sheet. there are no corners! this is impossib - hey there, can i help you with anything? hey siri, what's at&t's latest offer? oh, i don't think that siri can... right now, switch to at&t for an iphone and get one free. wow, is that right? yeah, it's basically... yes. that is the current offer from at&t. okay siri, you don't know everything. well, i know you asked me to call you the at&t hostess with the mostest. okay, shut her down. turn it off. right now, buy an iphone and get another one free when you add a second line. someone's hacked all our technology. technology... say, have you seen all the amazing technology in geico's mobile app? mobile app?
6:18 pm
emergency roadside service, i can even submit a claim. wow... yep, geico's mobile app works like a charm. geico. expect great savings and a whole lot more. >> greg: the game you just watched here on cbs, vanderbilt knocking off kentucky 74-62 after which they stormed the court which is verboten in the s.e.c. -- i think it should be verboten everywhere. >> clark: i agree. >> seth: can cost the school $50,000. i think it's sad an opposing coach feels he has to send his kids to the locker room that he's that worried about their safety. >> greg: there is no reason not to. >> clark: you've got to have a way to get the players safely off the court because you know
6:19 pm
storm the court and it's a matter of protection and safety and i hope we get to right across the country so nothing tragic happens before it's a universal rule. >> greg: let's get you caught up in other action today. texas tech, number two kansas. >> seth: kansas jayhawks playing to potentially be the number one ranked team in america. mykhailiuk was hot. kansas wins 12 straight conference titles. >> greg: seth davis love's countdown to a countdown in the locker room. congratulations to bill self and the kansas jayhawks. meanwhile the oklahoma sooners traveling to austin to take on texas. >> clark: they had good control of this one. buddy hield had 23 in the first half.
6:20 pm
connor lammert knocking down the three. that gave texas the lead. they had a 22-0 run late in the ballgame to win by 15. javan felix and isaiah taylor doing a terrific job playing downhill and getting to the free-throw line for texas. >> greg: texas a winner by the score of 76-63. meanwhile, seth, arizona on the road at utah running into a red-shot runnin' utes team. >> seth: a really good game. freshman for arizona trier had 23. gabe york. childers, where are you? old school reference. >> clark: i was at that game. >> seth: first time since 1998 the utes defeat arizona and nobody stormed the court. nobody got hurt. really good team, utah. watch them. >> greg: oklahoma a loser. your top four in the country. >> clark: i have five fighting for the number four seeds. michigan state -- kansas,
6:21 pm
one line for me, xavier, michigan state, north carolina, two of those three i think will end up on the one line. >> seth: we have a result to come today in charlottesville but right now virginia even though they're lower than north carolina in the a.c.c. standings would be above north carolina on the seed line based on their overall body of work if north carolina winds tonight. >> clark: i do think they get it done on the road. >> seth: my pick to win the title is michigan state. >> greg: we'll take a time out and back with more highlights. check this out, bro. what's that, broheim? i switched to geico and got more. more savings on car insurance? yeah bro-fessor, and more. like renters insurance. more ways to save. nice, bro-tato chip. that's not all, bro-tein shake. geico has motorcycle and rv insurance, too. oh, that's a lot more. oh yeah, i'm all about more, teddy brosevelt.

6:24 pm
eight, iowa and ohio state. all that comes your way tomorrow here on cbs. back to the highlights now and number 11 louisville on the road at miami. watch those hurricanes. >> clark: you bert keep an eye on them. they've got a lot of firepoufrment uceda knocking it down. louisville continuing to knock at the door. angel rodriguez with the lay-up. outstanding point guard for the canes. javan reed tied with rodriguez for a game-high 17 points. keep an eye on those canes. they've got size and terrific backcourt play. >> greg: number one villanova on the road. >> seth: another couple days number one at the top of the polls but i still think that villanova as of today is a number one seed along with xavier. it's interesting to see how they responded today on the road after the disappointing loss, four players in double figures, daniel ochefu i think is the key to their team because he's the
6:25 pm
painl paint. 18 points, 12 rebounds. i like this villanova team. >> greg: how far does villanova fall in the poefl? xavier. i still think they're a top-five team. >> greg: let's do this again tomorrow. >> clark: we'll be back. >> greg: for all of us here at sports i'm greg gumbel. we wish you a very good evening. we'll see you again tomorrow. closed captioning provided by cbs sports division there has to be a way. carry the centimeter, divide by 3.14 something something something...
