NCAA Game Summary - Ole Miss at Kentucky|
(Saturday, February 18th)
Final Score: (1) Kentucky 77, Ole Miss 62
Lexington, KY (Sports Network) - Kentucky's offensive depth was too much for
upset-minded Ole Miss.
Terrence Jones posted a double-double of 15 points and 11 rebounds, as the No.
1 Wildcats came away with a 77-62 win over the Rebels on Saturday.
Jones was one of five Kentucky players in double figures. Doron Lamb paced the
team with 16 points, Darius Miller scored 14, Kyle Wiltjer supplied 13 and
Anthony Davis added 10 with four blocks.
The Wildcats (26-1, 12-0 SEC) won their 18th straight game and extended the
nation's longest home winning streak to 50 games.
"I don't know if we should get credit for all those," Jones laughed. "They had
a season before us where they didn't lose at home either, so just to keep it
going is a great thing."
Terrance Henry had a game-high 18 points in the loss, the fourth in five games
for Ole Miss (15-11, 5-7).
Murphy Holloway finished with 15 points, six rebounds and three steals in
It took Kentucky less than five minutes to build a double-digit lead, as Lamb
hit a three-pointer to make it 16-5. But the Rebels battled back to go up
31-29 on a dunk by Demarco Cox with 4:48 left in the first half.
The Wildcats, though, drained three straight three-pointers -- two by Miller
and one by Lamb -- to take a 43-35 halftime lead, and they never trailed
following the break.
Kentucky's Marquis Teague dished out a game-high eight assists...Ole Miss fell
to 0-15 all-time against top-ranked teams, including 12 losses to
Kentucky...The Rebels last won at Kentucky in 1998.
