No. 22 Kentucky dominates South Carolina 90-59

LEXINGTON, KY. (AP) - Darius Miller scored a career-high 22 points and No. 22 Kentucky had little trouble in a 90-59 win over South Carolina on Saturday.

Terrence Jones added 19 points and 12 rebounds for the Wildcats (19-7, 7-5 SEC), who remained unbeaten at Rupp Arena under coach John Calipari. Kentucky scored the game's first 14 points and led by as much as 36 to push its home winning streak to 32, the second-longest in school history.

The Wildcats knocked down 11 of 20 3-pointers and had five players score at least 11 points, including junior guard DeAndre Liggins, who didn't start for the first time this season.

Malik Cooke led South Carolina (13-12, 4-7) with 12 points but the Gamecocks shot just 34 percent from the floor in losing their fifth straight.

Leading scorers Bruce Ellington and Sam Muldrow combined for 13 points on 3-of-17 shooting as South Carolina suffered its worst loss of the season.
