UK beats Drexel 88-44 to reach 2,000 wins

Kentucky's 2,000th victory looked awfully
familiar.
DeMarcus Cousins and Patrick Patterson scored 18 points apiece
and the third-ranked Wildcats became the first team in NCAA history
to reach the 2,000-win plateau with an 88-44 romp over Drexel on
Monday night.
Kentucky improved to 2,000-635-1 in 107 seasons. North Carolina
is next on the list with 1,992 wins while Kansas has 1,980.
The Wildcats did it in style, taking control early behind the
play of Cousins and John Wall to improve to 12-0. Wall finished
with 16 points and seven rebounds.
Samme Givens led Drexel (6-6) with 11 points, but the Dragons
shot just 31 percent from the field and spent most of the game as
invited guests to Kentucky's celebration.
