John Calipari also didn't have a timetable for Jarred Vanderbilt's return. "He's not mentally ready to go on the court." Said he's going to play him limited minutes to start, and prefers his debut to come at home.

Billy Kennedy said he knows the final play would have been a tough call for the officials to make, and the clock might have run out. But "my guys tell me [Tyler Davis] was bear-hugged."

Wild finish: A&M throws it downcourt to Tyler Davis, looked like he was being hugged/held down — ref raises his hand and doesn't signal anything. Everyone waiting, game over. FINAL: Kentucky 74, Texas A&M 73

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Texas A&M as a team is 2-for-8 from the free-throw line since the 5:07 mark.

Robert Williams has gone 0-for-4 from the free-throw line in the final five minutes.

Texas A&M turned it over two possessions in a row — and before that, fumbled the ball on two possessions in a row when driving to the rim, but got fortunate bounces. Kentucky's defense suddenly making it difficult for entry passes and dribble-drives.

Good finishing coming up at Rupp. Texas A&M 63, Kentucky 61. 3:57 left. Been tight throughout, biggest lead for each team was six points.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Robert Williams was a total non-factor in the first half. Zero points, two fouls. He's made a big difference in the second half, giving Texas A&M another option inside. Six points since halftime. Has missed three of the last five games.

Hamidou Diallo putting on a show in the second half. Had 10 straight points for Kentucky before that last Shai Gilgeous-Alexander bucket. Totaled 12 points combined in the past two games.
