LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Freshman Andrew Harrison scored a season-high 26 points and No. 13 Kentucky used near-perfect free throw shooting to pull away from Tennessee for a 74-66 victory Saturday.
 
      The Wildcats (13-4, 3-1 Southeastern Conference) made 23 of 24 from the line including their first 17 before Aaron Harrison, Andrew's twin, missed the front end of a 1-and-1 with 32 seconds remaining.
 
      Andrew Harrison made all 10 of his free throw attempts along with a couple of 3-pointers and freshman Julius Randle was 5 of 5 from the free throw line and 6 of 9 from the field for 18 points.
 
      Kentucky overcame a nine-point first-half deficit to beat the Volunteers (11-6, 2-2). Trailing 18-9 with 12:16 left in the half, the Wildcats closed with a 25-14 run over the final 11:06 and led by as many as 11 points in the second half.
 
      Kentucky was outrebounded 39-24 by the Vols, who made just 16 of 23 from the free throw line.
