Kentucky Rolls Marist

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Anthony Davis had 23 points and 10

rebounds to join Terrence Jones and Sam Bowie as the only freshmen

in Kentucky history with 20-10 games in their debuts, leading the

Wildcats past Marist.

Davis attacked the rim in the opener, finishing 10 of 13 with

eight dunks, as Kentucky shrugged off a slow start with a dominant

second half that turned a single-digit lead into a blowout in their

first game of the Basketball Hall of Fame Tip-Off tournament.

Jones, a sophomore, came off the bench for eight points after

the university said he was involved in an early morning car

accident. Coach John Calipari said earlier in the day that he would

institute a curfew for the Wildcats. Isaiah Morton led Marist with

13 points.
