LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Terrence Jones set a Kentucky freshman
single-game scoring record with 35 points as the 13th-ranked
Wildcats rolled by Auburn 78-54 on Tuesday night.
Jones broke the previous record of 32 points - set by teammate
Doron Lamb against Winthrop last month - behind a series of jumpers
and layups as Kentucky (13-3, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) easily
avoided its first losing streak under coach John Calipari.
Calipari challenged the Wildcats to be tougher after getting
pushed around in a loss to Georgia on Saturday. Kentucky didn't
have to do much to flex its muscle against the overmatched Tigers,
but wasted little time putting them away. The Wildcats built a
19-point lead before the game was 10 minutes old and cruised from
Allen Payne led the Tigers (7-9, 0-2) with 15 points.
