#17 Kentucky Pulls Away From Notre Dame, 72-58

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Terrence Jones scored 27 points and No.
17 Kentucky avoided its first losing streak under coach John
Calipari with a 72-58 victory over No. 23 Notre Dame on Wednesday
night in the SEC/Big East Invitational.
Jones had been chastised by Calipari for taking a pregame nap
before a loss to North Carolina on Saturday, a game in which Jones
scored just nine points on 3-of-17 shooting.
The freshman forward had no such problems against the Irish. He
made 9 of 18 shots - including a huge 3-pointer with just over 2
minutes left - grabbed 17 rebounds and added some late free throws
for Kentucky (6-2).
Ben Hansbrough led the Fighting Irish (8-1) with 21 points but
scored just two in the second half as Kentucky's defense clamped
down. Notre Dame went without a field goal for over 12 minutes
spanning the first and second halves, allowing Kentucky to turn an
11-point deficit into a seven-point lead it would never give up.
