      LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Alex Poythress scored a season-high 16 points as No. 14 Kentucky routed Texas A&M 68-51 on Tuesday night.
 
      Poythress and 7-foot freshman Dakari Johnson eagerly picked up the slack inside for Kentucky (14-4, 4-1 Southeastern Conference) with struggling 7-foot pivot man Willie Cauley-Stein limited by foul trouble. Poythress worked inside for baskets and got to the free throw line, hitting five straight during his 7-0 run that put the Wildcats up 44-33 with 14½ minutes remaining.
 
      Johnson added seven rebounds, six points and a career-high three blocks as the Wildcats outrebounded the Aggies 42-24 and were nearly even with them in the paint (30-32) The rebounding was a huge improvement for Kentucky after being dominated on the glass in Saturday's win over Tennessee.
 
      Alex Caruso and Davonte Fitzgerald had 12 points each for Texas A&M (12-6, 3-2), which lost its second straight.
