Terrence Jones posted a double-double of 15 points and 11 rebounds, as the No. 1 Wildcats came away with a 77-62 win over Ole Miss.

Kentucky's offensive depth was too much for upset-minded Ole Miss. Terrence Jones posted a double-double of 15 points and 11 rebounds, as the No. 1 Kentucky Wildcats came away with a 77-62 win over the Ole Miss Rebels on Saturday.

Jones was one of five Kentucky players in double figures. Doron Lamb paced the team with 16 points, Darius Miller scored 14, Kyle Wiltjer supplied 13 and Anthony Davis added 10 with four blocks.

The Wildcats (26-1, 12-0 SEC) won their 18th straight game and extended the nation's longest home winning streak to 50 games.

Terrance Henry had a game-high 18 points in the loss, the fourth in five games for Ole Miss (15-11, 5-7).

Murphy Holloway finished with 15 points, six rebounds and three steals in defeat.

It took Kentucky less than five minutes to build a double-digit lead, as Lamb hit a three-pointer to make it 16-5. But the Rebels battled back to go up 31-29 on a dunk by Demarco Cox with 4:48 left in the first half.

The Wildcats, though, drained three straight three-pointers -- two by Miller and one by Lamb -- to take a 43-35 halftime lead, and they never trailed following the break.
