Nov. 2, 2011
LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Terrence Jones scored 22 points and grabbed 12 rebounds to lead No. 2 Kentucky to a 97-53 exhibition victory over Division III Transylvania on Wednesday night.
The Wildcats' three highly touted freshmen all made big contributions for a team expected to make a run deep in the NCAA tournament.
Brandon Rash's 3-pointer gave the Pioneers an early 11-4 lead, but Kentucky used a pair of 13-0 runs to erase the deficit and build a 37-23 halftime lead that grew to 45 late in the second half.
The two schools hadn't played each other since 1911, splitting their 14 previous meetings.
