Big First Half Ignites Kentucky To Win Over Indiana

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Josh Harrellson scored 15 points off the
bench to lead four other Wildcats players in double-digits as
Kentucky dominated Indiana 72-54 on Saturday.
One year after Indiana greeted new Kentucky coach Billy
Gillispie to the rivalry with a 70-51 thumping in Bloomington,
Indiana, the Wildcats returned the favor in Lexington for Indiana's
new coach, Tom Crean.
Kentucky (7-3) won for the 29th time in 52 meetings between the
two schools. The Wildcats increased their record to 7-1 against the
Hoosiers (5-5) at Rupp Arena.
Jodie Meeks had 13 points for Kentucky, Patrick Patterson added
12 and DeAndre Liggins and Perry Stevenson each added 10. Stevenson
also led Kentucky with nine rebounds and six blocks.
Devan Dumes led Indiana with 15 points.
The Wildcats overwhelmed the Hoosiers from the opening tip-off,
scoring the first 14 points of the game.
