No. 1 Kentucky pulls away from Montevallo, 95-72

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Freshman forward Julius Randle scored 21 points to lead five Kentucky players in double figures, and the No. 1 Wildcats pulled away for a 95-72 exhibition victory over Montevallo on Monday night.
 
The Wildcats' final tuneup before Friday's opener against North Carolina-Asheville saw them trail 9-2 to the Division II Falcons before going ahead for good with a 14-0 run. Montevallo stayed within reach in the fast-paced game and even got within 49-40 early in the second half before Kentucky's 12-2 run provided a cushion.
 
Kentucky shot 36 of 62 (58 percent).
 
James Young added 16 points and five rebounds for Kentucky and made a hustle play resulting in a Montevallo basket. Leaping out of bounds for a loose ball, the freshman flipped it backwards and the lob went through the net to bring a standing ovation from 20,039 in Rupp Arena.
 
Montevallo's Troran Brown scored a game-high 30 points.
