Lexington, KY (Sports Network) - Alex Poythress registered his first career double-double with 20 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Kentucky Wildcats to a 75-70 victory over the LSU Tigers in an SEC matchup at Rupp Arena.

Archie Goodwin added 15 points as Kentucky (13-6, 4-2 SEC) avoided losing consecutive games for the first time since SEC play began. Ryan Harrow chipped in 11 points, and Nerlens Noel filled the stat sheet with 10 points, eight boards and six blocks.

Johnny O'Bryant III had a big afternoon for LSU (10-7, 1-5) with 21 points and 12 boards. Anthony Hickey had 15 points and three steals, while Andre Stringer scored 13 points on 5-of-7 from the field.
