Kentucky advances to Cancun Challenge finals, 73-49

CANCUN, Mexico (AP) - Once John Wall gained his footing, not
even a warped court could slow down Kentucky.
The heralded freshman found his form in the second half and
proved too much to handle in the open floor as the No. 5 Wildcats
raced past Cleveland State 73-49 on Tuesday in the Cancun Challenge
at the Moon Palace Resort.
Wall scored a team-high 15 points, including 11 after halftime,
as he zipped in and out of the Cleveland State defense. The
nation's top-rated recruit last year repeatedly found gaps in the
defense, drawing trips to the free-throw line or setting up
teammates for open looks at the basket.
The game was played in unconventional surroundings, with the
resort's main ballroom being converted into a makeshift gymnasium.
