BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -- Terrence Jones highlighted a 27-point performance with a 13-0 run on his own and No. 1 Kentucky pulled away in the second half for a 74-50 win over struggling LSU Saturday night. Anthony Davis had 16 points and 10 rebounds despite briefly leaving the game when he hurt his right shoulder in a scramble for a loose ball. Darius Miller added 13 points including three 3-pointers for Kentucky (21-1 7-0 Southeastern), which has won 13 straight games. Johnny O'Bryant III had 12 points and nine rebounds for LSU (12-9, 2-5), which has lost four of its last five. Storm Warren had 11 points for the Tigers, including an alley-oop dunk that briefly got the Tigers within a point at 25-24 late in the first half, before the Wildcats pulled away. Jones scored the last four points of the first half, then helped Kentucky break the game open by scoring the first nine of the second half on two dunks, a fastbreak layup and another basket inside as he was fouled. His last of 13 straight points in the game gave Kentucky a 44-26 lead. A few minutes later, Jones made his ninth field goal in 11 shots on a short jumper in the lane that gave him 21 points and put the Wildcats up 51-30. LSU missed its first five shots, and 11 of its first 15. Davis went down hard on his back during a scramble for a loose ball in the first half and remained down after the play before getting up grimacing and holding his right shoulder. While he was gone, LSU went on an 8-1 run capped when Warren finished a fast break by taking lob from Hickey to cut Kentucky's lead to a point. The crowd was still on its feet and howling when Marquis Teague calmly answered with a 3. Miller added another 3 soon after as the Wildcats closed the half on a 10-2 run to take a 35-26 lead into the locker room.
