Kentucky turned in its first victory over a ranked opponent behind a dominating second half performance and a school-record 12 blocks from freshman Nerlens Noel in an 87-74 win at Ole Miss on Tuesday. The Wildcats finished the game on a 14-2 run to secure the victory over the 16th-ranked Rebels.
Noel’s 12 blocks ties the freshman for fourth all-time among BCS players for rejections in a single game. Sophomore Kyle Wiltjer poured in a career-high 26 points, while freshman Archie Goodwin tallied 24 in his fourth game of the season with 20 or more points.
UK’s matchup with the Aggies on Saturday marks the first rematch of the season for the Blue and White after dropping an 83-71 contest to Texas A&M in Rupp in mid-January.
