No. 2 Kentucky routs Arkansas

Jan 18, 2012 - 5:35 AM Lexington, KY (Sports Network) - Anthony Davis scored a career-high 27 points, grabbed 14 rebounds and blocked seven shots as No. 2 Kentucky rolled over Arkansas, 86-63, in an SEC mismatch.

Davis set the Kentucky single-season record with his second block and currently has 87 in his freshman campaign.

"It's a great accomplishment, especially for a freshman, so I am really proud of myself," Davis said. "I didn't even know how many blocks I had. ...I just wanted to block every shot so they don't have a potential to score."

The Wildcats (18-1, 4-0 SEC) also had four other double-digit scorers -- Doron Lamb (14), Terrence Jones (13), Darius Miller (11) and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (10) -- in extending their home winning streak to 46 games.

Mardracus Wade netted 12 points for the Razorbacks (13-5, 2-2), who were coming off Saturday's win over LSU.

Arkansas trailed the entire way, falling behind 8-0 less than three minutes in. The margin reach as high as 20 in the first half after Lamb's three- pointer made it 33-13 with 3 1/2 minutes remaining.

The Wildcats connected on 48 percent from the field in the first half for a 37-21 lead, and were even more efficient in the final 20 minutes by hitting 66 percent of their shots.

Davis had a pair of dunks midway through, throwing down the first despite getting fouled. The second slam resulted in a 70-42 cushion that was not challenged down the stretch.

"It was a great opportunity and it's a learning situation for our guys. There are going to be more ball games," Arkansas head coach Mike Anderson said.
