Cats' big second half puts away Kansas

UK's Doron Lamb had 17 points in a homecoming to NYC to help the Cats beat Kansas 75-65 in Madison Square Garden.
NEW YORK (AP) - Doron Lamb scored 17 points, Terrence Jones had
15 and No. 2 Kentucky raced to a decisive spurt at the start of the
second half, passing an early-season test with a 75-65 victory over
No. 12 Kansas on Tuesday night in a matchup between the two
winningest programs in college basketball.
      Anthony Davis added 14 points for the balanced Wildcats (2-0),
an impressive winner at Madison Square Garden in the State Farm
Champions Classic. Starting three highly touted freshmen, Kentucky
gave John Calipari his first career win against Kansas, a school
that brings up both fond and painful memories for the third-year
Wildcats coach.
      Tyshawn Taylor, who grew up just across the Hudson River in New
Jersey, scored 22 points to lead the Jayhawks (1-1). Thomas
Robinson added 11 points and 12 rebounds before fouling out with
3:31 to go.
