Recap


KENTUCKY 77, OLE MISS 62: Terrence Jones had 15 points and 10 rebounds, his first double-double of the season, to lead the Wildcats to their 18th straight win and 50th consecutive victory at home.

Jones was one of five players to score in double figures for Kentucky (26-1, 12-0 SEC), including Doron Lamb with 16, Darius Miller with 14, Kyle Wiltjer with 13 and Anthony Davis with 10.

Mississippi (15-11, 5-7 SEC) lost its second straight game, despite 18 points from Terrence Henry and 15 points and six rebounds from Murphy Holloway.

Kentucky led by as many as 11 points early in the game, only to have Ole Miss battle back and catch up. But the Wildcats used their three-point shooting late in the half to pull away for good. Miller had two three-pointers and Lamb had another trey to spark a 9-1 run at the end of the half that gave Kentucky a 43-34 lead going into the locker room.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Lamb has made multiple three-pointers in eight of the last nine games... Jones has scored in double figures in 11 of 12 games... Davis played only eight minutes in the first half because of foul trouble.
