Kentucky's hot-shooting too much for Ole Miss on the road

Feb. 13—No. 22 Kentucky shot 52% from the field Tuesday night against Ole Miss and stifled the Rebels defensively, as the Wildcats took down Ole Miss 75-63 at Rupp Arena.

The Rebels (18-6, 5-6 SEC) have lost three games in a row overall — all coming at the hands of ranked teams — and have not won at Kentucky since 1998.
