LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Terrence Jones scored 17 points and

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist added 15 points and nine rebounds to help

No. 2 Kentucky beat Radford 88-40 on Wednesday night in the

Wildcats' first home game in nearly two weeks.

Kentucky (5-0) improved to 35-0 at Rupp Arena since John

Calipari took over as coach in 2009 and has a final tuneup game

against Portland on Saturday before St. John's comes on Dec. 1 and

No. 1 North Carolina visits two days later.

Radford (3-4) struggled against Kentucky's defensive pressure

and athleticism. The Highlanders missed their first 12 shots and

committed eight turnovers before finally scoring nearly 10 minutes

into the game. They finished 2 of 25 from 3-point range.
