Any concern of a potential hangover following their physical win on Friday night was quickly erased by the UK basketball team when they jumped out to a 41-14 halftime lead on the way to a blowout over Eastern Kentucky.

The Cats were led by freshman Karl-Anthony Towns, who finished the game with 19 points, 9 rebounds and 4 blocks, while fellow freshman Trey Lyles added 10 points and 10 boards. Junior Willie Cauley-Stein, fresh off the best game of his career against the Longhorns Friday, contributed 11 points, 5 rebounds, 2 blocks and 2 steals.
