LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Archie Goodwin scored a career-high 28 points, and Alex Poythress added 20 to help No. 8 Kentucky rally past stubborn Morehead State, 81-70 on Wednesday night.

Their biggest contributions came at the foul line as the much-hyped freshmen combined to convert 20 of 25 free throws to help the Wildcats (3-1) fight back several times against the Eagles (3-2) before steadily pulling away in the second half.

Julius Mays added 11 points, and freshmen forward Nerlens Noel and Kyle Wiltjer each had nine. Noel also had 11 rebounds and three blocks.

Milton Chavis scored 23 points for Morehead State, which had runs of 16-0 in the first half and 11-4 to start the second. Maurice Lewis-Briggs added 13 points, and Drew Kelly had 10.

The Eagles committed 32 fouls, while the Wildcats - 31 of 41 from the line - had 12.
