Wiltjer sparks Kentucky past Lipscomb 88-50

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kyle Wiltjer had his first career double-double, finishing with 23 points and 12 rebounds in Kentucky's 88-50 win Saturday over Lipscomb.

Wiltjer came off the bench for the first time this season - point guard Ryan Harrow took his spot in the starting five - but logged 24 minutes and was the key to Kentucky's offense. He finished 8 of 12 from the field and 7 of 9 from 3-point range.

Lipscomb (4-5) kept its deficit within single digits much of the first half until the Wildcats scored six straight points to close the half with a 43-29 lead.

Kentucky (7-3) broke the game open in the second half by outscoring the Bisons 22-3 over a five-minute stretch.

Nerlens Noel finished with seven points, nine rebounds, seven blocks and four steals for the Wildcats. He fouled out with 5:21 to play.

Martin Smith had 18 points for Lipscomb.
