LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Freshman Anthony Davis scored a career-high 27 points and blocked seven shots to set a season school record in No. 2 Kentucky’s 86-63 victory over Arkansas on Tuesday night.
The Wildcats (18-1, 4-0 Southeastern Conference) won their 10th straight overall and extended the nation’s longest home winning streak to 46, including 45 straight at Rupp Arena.
The Wildcats jumped on the Razorbacks (13-5, 2-2) by taking a 10-2 lead and extending it to as many as 20 before halftime.
Davis, who had 14 rebounds, blocked his 84th shot with just under 5 minutes left in the first half when he turned away freshman B.J. Young’s layup to set the record previously held by Melvin Turpin and matched by Andre Riddick.
Doron Lamb scored 14 points, Terrence Jones 13, Darius Miller 11 and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist 10 for Kentucky.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Stu Douglass made a layup with 36.5 seconds remaining for the lead and Michigan held on through a wild final sequence.
On Michigan State’s last possession, Keith Appling drove to the basket but had his shot blocked by Jordan Morgan. Brandon Wood of the Spartans came up with the ball, and Draymond Green was able to get another shot off from near the free throw line, but it missed.
Freshman Trey Burke scored 20 points for Michigan. He rebounded a miss by Appling in the final minute and turned it into a transition chance, eventually passing to Douglass for the winning layup.
