Kentucky Basketball highlights and box score from Wildcats smashing Vols

"It goes back to what we've been doing in practice", Willis said.

United Kingdom coach John Calipari said this game was really the first step in the rebooting, retooling, or whatever way you want to describe it. "But we were just very bad".

Kentucky coach John Calipari said in the preseason that this might be his best defensive team yet and while the No. 11 Wildcats showed glimpses of realizing that potential, they are far from backing up their coach's optimism.

The amount of ball movement the Cats had in Tuesday night's game was something Cats fans enjoyed against the Volunteers.

It was a great brand of basketball for Willis, who drained 4-of-5 in the first period as the Wildcats built a 47-32 halftime lead. Tennessee outscored United Kingdom 37-4 on bench points in the game in Knoxville, but the Wildcats were much better against the Vols in the rematch. "(Willis) and Gabriel were nonfactors and we talked about it all week. "That's what we can't allow to happen and we let it happen". "But they have a number of players that can take over a game".

During the first half the Cats got off to a slow start shooting the ball but were able to heat up and go on multiple runs throughout the half. On one sequence, Willis passed up a 3-point shot and so do Monk, who passed to Fox.

Once again, evidence of Calipari's "re-boot" was easy to spot. Florida then pounded the Wildcats by 22 on February 4 before they escaped with single-digit wins over LSU and Alabama.

Tennessee (14-11/6-6) is on The NCAA Tournament bubble, one of the first four out in projetions. OK, you're up 18, here's how we play.

It was a three point show for the Cats for nearly five minutes in the first half as they went on a huge run against the Vols.

"This is still a work in progress", Calipari said.

"I just know we get another day to recoup, and I know that this team is going to fight back, because this is not a team that stays down, and I'm just looking for that team that's going to fight back right now".

Here is the information you need for the game.

Whatever it was, it worked, in different ways each half.

So what was better for the Wildcats against Tennessee?

BC had sliced it to 78-76 on Bowman's two free throws with just under a minute to play, but Beachem grabbed an offensive rebound and was fouled on the ensuing possession. You've got to use open-court driving to get to the rim.

- Bam Adebayo had seven points and 12 rebounds, his first double-digit rebounding game since UCLA in early December when he had 13 and only his fourth of the season.

"It's who he should be", Calipari said. "I like the calm Cal in the game". They're going to miss 30 shots. Along with his 12 points, Briscoe would tally up four rebounds and six assists which would be tied for the team high with fellow guard De'Aaron Fox. The story of the game for Monk wasn't just his ability to score but it was his effort to get more rebounds racking up seven Tuesday night.
