As teammate  strung together long jumpers, Oscar Tshiebwe outrebounded Western all by himself on a record-breaking night that supplanted Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal.

Grady made six 3-pointers and scored a season-high 23 points, Tshiebwe grabbed a Rupp Arena-record 28 rebounds and No. 20 used an 18-2 second-half run to blow out the Hilltoppers 95-60 on Wednesday.

The Wildcats thumped 98-69 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
