Kentucky rolls past Morehead State 81-45 in opener

Jr. had 15 points and seven rebounds, and each added 12 points and No. 10 cruised past 81-45 in the season opener Wednesday night.

Starting with more roster turnover than usual with 10 new faces, including seven highly-regarded freshmen and two transfers, the young Wildcats were surprisingly solid in their first real action together. They never trailed and steadily built a double-digit lead that reached 34 points with about five minutes left.

Boston, a 6-foot-7 guard, was 7 of 14 from the field, and Askew and Clarke each made 5 of 9 attempts. Graduate transfer added 10 points off the bench as rolled in its first game of the Bluegrass Showcase. Freshman forward contributed five rebounds, two blocks and a steal in 19 minutes.

The Wildcats shot 56% and outrebounded the Eagles 37-25.
