LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Ryan Harrow scored a career-high 23 points and Kentucky used a 21-5 second-half run to pull away for an 82-54 victory over Marshall on Saturday.
Archie Goodwin added 18 points and Nerlens Noel 11 as the Wildcats (8-3) won their fourth straight before a season-high 24,271 at Rupp Arena. Kentucky also improved to 12-0 against Marshall.
Kentucky's final tune-up before next Saturday's showdown at fifth-ranked Louisville saw the Wildcats shoot just 42 percent (29 of 69) but benefit from even worse shooting by the Thundering Herd, who hit 29.5 percent (18 of 61).
Harrow, making his second straight start at point guard, helped lift Kentucky from its sluggish start with 11 first-half points and two assists. He surpassed his previous career high of 20 two years against South Carolina Upstate while playing for North Carolina State.
Elijah Pittman had 17 points and Dennis Tinnon 14 for Marshall (7-6).
