Five days after beating No. 13 Michigan State in New York, the Wildcats (4-0) made their case toward supplanting Duke for No. 1 when The Associated Press' Top 25 is announced Monday. The first of several scheduled late-evening starts didn't affect Kentucky as it won by its biggest margin this season.
The Wildcats controlled Duquesne (2-3) on both ends, holding the Dukes to a season-low 30 percent shooting while making 35 of 76 attempts (46 percent).
Emile Blackman's 13 points led the Dukes, who lost their third in four games.
