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.
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.
