LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Freshman Anthony Davis had 23 points and
10 rebounds to join Terrence Jones and Sam Bowie as the only
freshmen in Kentucky history with 20-10 games in their debuts,
leading the second-ranked Wildcats to a 108-58 victory over Marist
on Friday night.
Davis attacked the rim in the opener, finishing 10 of 13 with
eight dunks, as Kentucky shrugged off a slow start with a dominant
second half that turned a single-digit lead into a blowout in their
first game of the Basketball Hall of Fame Tip-Off tournament.
Jones, a sophomore, came off the bench for eight points after
the university said he was involved in an early morning car
accident. Coach John Calipari said earlier in the day that he would
institute a curfew for the Wildcats.
