It didn’t take long for the Wildcats to get going tonight after the late ESPN tip-off. KentuckyÂ gave up the first score to A&M, but then hit the gas for 15 straight points and never looked back, taking a 23-point lead into halftime.
Malik Monk leads all scorers with 13, just ahead of De’Aaron Fox, who is on early triple-double watch with 10 points, four rebounds and four assists.
Kentucky has already forced A&M into 15 —FIFTEEN!— turnovers.
