Injury keeps Ogilvy out of Kentucky game

Sophomore center A.J. Ogilvy did not play in Saturday's 70-60 loss at Kentucky after aggravating an injury to his right heel during yesterday's practice.

Head Coach Kevin Stallings commented on Ogilvy's status in his postgame press conference:

“We knew A.J. wasn’t going to be able to go this morning. He hurt his foot yesterday in the first 15 minutes of practice. He sat out of the remaining part of practice. We hoped it would get better in time for the game, but obviously it didn’t. As a result, we didn’t score very many points inside today. He is certainly our best low-post player but that is not to say that if he played then the outcome of the game would be any different.”

Ogilvy's foot injury caused him to miss the first game of his career against Saint Francis on December 31. He returned to the lineup in Vanderbilt's following outing at UMass. He leads the Commodores in scoring (16.5) and rebounding (7.2) this season.


  1. Why did XM carry only the UK broadcast and why were we unable to get Fisher on XM as well as through Please correct these problems so we can listen to the Vanderbilt perspective of the games.

  2. Thanks for your comments. Unfortunately, XM only carries the home broadcast for SEC games. We apologize for some of the tech diffifulties on vucommodores Saturday and have notified the approriate staff.
