LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Archie Goodwin scored 18 points, Alex Poythress added 16 and all five Kentucky starters scored in double figures as the Wildcats broke a two-game losing streak by drubbing Samford 88-56 on Tuesday night.

Nerlens Noel added 13 points while Julius Mays and Kyle Wiltjer each had 10 for the Wildcats (5-3), who shot 34 of 61 from the field (56 percent) against the Bulldogs after hitting just 40 of 118 in back-to-back losses against Notre Dame and Baylor.

Those defeats led to Kentucky falling from No. 8 last week to out of the Top 25, ending a 61-week stay in the poll that included 11 weeks at No. 1. The Wildcats responded by outrebounding the Bulldogs 41-25 and holding them to 40 percent shooting.

Raijon Kelly scored 14 points for Samford (2-8), which didn't score its 10th point until 4:15 remained in the half.
