    LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Patrick Patterson scored a career-high 31 points and Jodie Meeks added 19 and six assists as Kentucky rolled by Lamar 103-61 on Wednesday night.

    DeAndre Liggins, playing in his first home game since clashing with coach Billy Gillispie during last week's Las Vegas Invitational, added 16 points, seven rebounds and five assists for the Wildcats (5-2). Kentucky shot 64 percent from the floor while overpowering the Cardinals to win its fifth straight.

    The Wildcats played most of the game without Ramon Harris, was taken to a local hospital for tests after colliding with teammate Michael Porter in the first half.

    Coy Custer and Kenny Dawkins led Lamar (5-1) with 11 points apiece, but the Cardinals had trouble slowing Kentucky down. The Wildcats outscored Lamar 46-24 in the paint and had a 20-2 advantage in fastbreak points.
