No. 1 Kentucky closing in on undefeated SEC season

COLIN FLY AP Sports Writer Published:

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Freshman Anthony Davis and No. 1 Kentucky might just be in perfect position as the regular season winds down.

Davis is a leading candidate for national player of the year, while the Wildcats (27-1, 13-0) are closing in on the first undefeated run through the Southeastern Conference since accomplishing the feat in 2003.

Davis says he's not looking ahead -- like where he might be drafted if he declares for the NBA -- or back at a blown opportunity for an undefeated season: the buzzer-beating loss to Indiana on Dec. 10.

He's focused on Vanderbilt (20-8, 9-4).

The Wildcats will put their 50-game home winning streak on the line on Saturday against the Commodores, who have won at every SEC venue in the last four years except Rupp Arena.
