The UK basketball team improved to 17-0 and John Calipari picked up his first win in Tuscaloosa as Kentucky’s coach as the Wildcats cruised to a 70-48 win at Coleman Coliseum.

With their trademark energy and defense in full force from the start of the game, the Cats were able to jump out to a 35-17 halftime lead. Alabama would come out swinging in the second half, opening the final 20 minutes with a 13-4 run and a renewed commitment to physical play. The Cats responded though and eventually walked away with a 70-48 win.

Freshman Devin Booker again led the way with 13 points, while Dakari Johnson and Tyler Ulis both added 11. The Cats return to the court Tuesday at 9pm against Vanderbilt.
