Davis shines, No. 1 Kentucky tops St. John's 81-59

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Freshman Anthony Davis scored 15 points,
grabbed 15 rebounds and had eight of a school-record 18 blocks in
No. 1 Kentucky's 81-59 victory over St. John's on Thursday night.

Terrence Jones added 26 points and nine rebounds for the
Wildcats (7-0), who head into a highly anticipated showdown with
No. 5 North Carolina on Saturday on a high note after a stalwart
defensive performance.

Davis blocked four shots before the first timeout, and Kentucky
set the team record with Eloy Vargas' swat with 2:42 to go. Davis
finished one block short of tying the individual mark of nine set
by Sam Bowie in 1981 and matched by Andre Riddick in 1993.

God'sgift Achiuwa scored 18 points and Moe Harkless added 16 for
the Red Storm (4-4).
