No. 1 Kentucky blows away Northern Kentucky, 93-63

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Julius Randle scored 22 points en route to another double-double that led top-ranked Kentucky's 93-63 blowout of Northern Kentucky on Sunday.

Two days after the 6-foot-9, 250-pound forward debuted with 23 points and 15 rebounds for the Wildcats (2-0), he scored 20 points in 28 minutes before later heading to the bench with 14 rebounds against the overmatched Norse (0-2).

Guard Aaron Harrison added 16 points for Kentucky while twin brother Andrew had 13. Alex Poythress contributed nine points while 7-footer Willie Cauley-Stein added seven points and 11 rebounds.

Needing a good tuneup with Tuesday's showdown looming against No. 2 Michigan State in Chicago, the Wildcats responded by dominating every area. Kentucky shot 30 of 55 from the field (54.5 percent), outrebounded NKU 51-23 and scored 36 points in the paint.

Daniel Camp's 13 points led Northern Kentucky in the first meeting between the schools located 83 miles apart.
