(1) Kentucky 66
Tennessee 48

Final from Knoxville, Kentucky

Top-ranked Kentucky pulled away from Tennessee in the second half and eventually knocked off the Volunteers 66-48 tonight in Knoxville.

With the win, the Wildcats (26-0, 13-0 SEC) are off to the best start in their program's history.

Devin Booker scored 18 points and pulled down 7 rebounds to lead Kentucky. Andrew Harrison added 14 points. Trey Lyles chipped in 10. Tyler Ulis finished with 8 points and a game-high 6 assists.

Tennessee (14-11, 6-7) got 14 points from Kevin Punter. Josh Richardson added 10.

Kentucky was 22-for-53 (41.5%) from the field. John Calipari credited Tennessee's defense after the game.

“It’s hard to play against that zone," Calipari told the media after the game. "I told Donnie [Tyndall] that he’s done a great job with what they did. They were prepared for us."

The Wildcats return to action Saturday night when they host Auburn.
