LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Willie Cauley-Stein broke a slump with 18 points and 11 rebounds, and No. 18 Kentucky shot 60 percent in the second half for an 80-64 victory over Mississippi on Tuesday night.

The Wildcats' 7-foot sophomore went 7 of 8 from the field to score more points than his previous six games combined (14) while reaching double digits in rebounds for the first time in nine games. Cauley-Stein had six blocks and altered other attempts to help limit the Rebels (15-7, 6-3 Southeastern Conference) to 36 percent shooting in the second half and 39 percent overall

Kentucky (17-5, 7-2) made 15 of 25 from the field in the second half to turn a 35-34 halftime lead into a rout and earn their second consecutive victory.

Aaron Harrison added 16 points while Julius Randle scored 11 of his 12 points after halftime as the Wildcats finished shooting 51 percent from the field.
