COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Kentucky may have never felt so blue after a win in the NCAA Tournament.Gerald Fitch scored 26 points and the top-seeded Wildcats advanced to the second round with a 96-76 victory Friday night over 16th-seeded and fearless Florida A&M in the St. Louis Regional. It was anything but easy for the Wildcats (27-4), who didn't lock up their 13th straight first-round win until midway through the second half against the Rattlers (15-17).
