UNCASVILLE, Conn. - The University of Kentucky basketball team trounced Penn State 85-47 in the Wildcats’ opening game of the Hall of Fame Tip-Off Classic at the Mohegan Sun Casino.
Sophomore guard Doron Lamb led the way with 26 points, four rebounds, two assists and a steal, and freshman forward Kyle Wiltjer came off the bench to score 19 points as second-ranked Kentucky improved to 3-0 on the season.
The Nittany Lions (3-1) shot an abysmal 6 of 37 from the field in the first half, including just 1 of 15 from 3-point range. They also sank just 2 of 9 free throws in the first 20 minutes.
With 15:50 left in the game, Lamb was outscoring Penn State 24-23 by himself. The Wildcats led 56-23 at that point and eventually got the lead as big as 41 points.
Sophomore forward Terrence Jones had 15 points, nine rebounds, five assists, a block and a steal. Star freshman forward Anthony Davis had a quiet game – just three points, six rebounds and three blocked shots in 23 minutes – after his big night against Kansas earlier in the week.
The Wildcats blocked eight shots in the game and have swatted 34 in the first three games.
