     LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Reserve Kyle Wiltjer scored a
personal-best 24 points and a trio of freshmen sparked No. 3
Kentucky's 17-2 second-half run to beat Loyola (Md.) 87-63 on
Thursday for the Wildcats' 42nd straight win at home.
    
    Freshmen Wiltjer, Anthony Davis and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist all
had afternoons to remember as Kentucky (11-1) heads into a five-day
break before the schedule begins to ramp up.
     
     Baltimore-based Loyola (8-3) stayed close throughout the first
half and pestered Kentucky, which was missing preseason All-America
Terrence Jones for the second straight game after he dislocated the
pinky finger on his left, shooting hand on Saturday.
     
     Erik Etherly scored 14 points, Dylon Cormier 13 and Justin
Drummond 10 for the Greyhounds.
