Top 'Cats Are Just Too Good for MU; Kentucky Gives Tigers Worst Loss in 17 Years; College Basketball: KENTUCKY 86, MIZZOU 37


Matter, Dave, St Louis Post-Dispatch (MO)


LEXINGTON, Ky. * To have any shot against undefeated and top- ranked Kentucky, Missouri coach Kim Anderson figured his Tigers needed a special performance Tuesday from at least one of his players and a deluge of perimeter shots. That was the recipe for Ole Miss and Texas A&M, who both took the Wildcats to overtime last week before UK restored order with its unmatched talent and depth.

But against the country's No. 1 team and its seemingly endless supply of rim protection, there was nothing special about the Tigers' second SEC voyage to the league's Lexington cathedral. The Wildcats used a 20-2 first-half surge to gain control for good and sent the Tigers home with an 86-37 defeat.

It was Mizzou's most lopsided loss since Norm Stewart's Tigers lost 111-56 at Kansas State on Jan. 3, 1998.

Mizzou (7-9, 1-2) fell behind 44-18 at halftime its fewest first- half points since scoring 16 in a 62-60 win over Kansas on Feb. 9, 2009.

Aaron Harrison scored a game-high 16 points for Kentucky (16-0, 3- 0), while Willie Cauley-Stein added 12 and Karl Anthony-Towns had 12.

Keanau Post and Wes Clark each scored 10 for Missouri.

The loss dropped the Tigers to 0-7 all-time against Kentucky, and it was Mizzou's seventh straight loss against teams ranked No. 1 in The Associated Press poll.

Up next, the Tigers attempt to break even in conference play with Saturday's visit from Tennessee (10-5, 2-1), the first of four home games in a five-game stretch over two weeks.

Mizzou came to Lexington as a heavy underdog UK was favored by 24 points at tip-off but with a chance to measure itself against the class of the SEC. Kentucky, meanwhile, has what constitutes as first-world problems, like its surplus of guards who might be good enough to deliver a national championship but not elite enough to enter the NBA draft and clear space for the next haul of blue-chip recruits.

Anderson would love to have such problems. In MU's first Rupp Arena visit since a 90-83 overtime loss in 2013, Anderson hoped someone from his team would duplicate the 25-point outings Ole Miss' Stefan Moody and Texas A&M's Danuel House enjoyed in nearly toppling Kentucky last week. …
