The Kentucky Wildcats showed everyone just how dominant they could be with their 81-66 victory over the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers. Kentucky held a 45-26 lead at halftime and just continued to dunk their way to the win on Thursday night.

Two other Wildcats had big nights, with Doron Lamb and Anthony Davis both picking up 16 points and Davis adding nine rebounds.
For the Hilltoppers, it wasn't a very good night. T.J. Price was able to score 21 points to lead Western Kentucky, but they just couldn't get enough offense going to keep up with the onslaught Kentucky brought to the court.
