Recap: Kentucky vs. Portland

Lexington, KY (Sports Network) - Alex Poythress and Archie Goodwin scored 15 points apiece, and the Kentucky Wildcats cruised to a 74-46 win over the Portland Pilots in non-conference play at Rupp Arena.

Julius Mays added 13 points and Kyle Wiltjer scored 12 for the Wildcats (6-3), who were ranked No. 8 in the country only a week ago. Nerlens Noel was the lone starter not in double figures, although he finished with seven blocks and nine rebounds to go along with his seven points.
