NEW YORK (AP) -- Doron Lamb scored 17 points, Terrence Jones had 15 and No. 2 Kentucky raced to a decisive spurt at the start of the second half, passing an early-season test with a 75-65 victory over No. 12 Kansas on Tuesday night in a matchup between the two winningest programs in college basketball. Anthony Davis added 14 points for the balanced Wildcats (2-0), an impressive winner at Madison Square Garden in the State Farm Champions Classic. Starting three highly touted freshmen, Kentucky gave John Calipari his first career win against Kansas, a school that brings up both fond and painful memories for the third-year Wildcats coach. Tyshawn Taylor, who grew up just across the Hudson River in New Jersey, scored 22 points to lead the Jayhawks (1-1). Thomas Robinson added 11 points and 12 rebounds before fouling out with 3:31 to go.
