LEXINGTON, Ky. — Brandon Knight scored 19 points, Terrence Jones added 17 in his second game coming off the bench and No. 13 Kentucky beat LSU 82-44 on Saturday.

The Wildcats (14-3, 2-1 Southeastern Conference) held the Tigers to a season-low 26 percent shooting, forced 15 turnovers and never let up while handing LSU (10-8, 2-1) its worst loss of the season

Garrett Green led the Tigers with 13 points but LSU was never in it. Kentucky needed less than eight minutes to move in front by double digits on the way to its second straight win following a loss to Georgia last weekend.

Kentucky coach John Calipari has been pushing the Wildcats to play with a higher sense of urgency and commitment. He saw plenty of both, particularly in the first half as Kentucky rolled to a 29-point lead.
