The Cats capped the game with an 8-0 run that also included a pair of free throws by freshman guard Tyrese Maxey, who scored a career-high 27 points to lead UK.

Kentucky and Keion Brooks Jr. would have a shot to end the game at the buzzer, but the attempt rimmed out at the buzzer.

KEY FACILITATOR: Ashton Hagans has accounted for 56 percent of all Kentucky field goals over the last three games.
