Notre Dame beat Kentucky 64-50 in the first game of the SEC-Big East challenge. 

If the final score is any indication, Kentucky couldn't score. Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey had an excellent gameplan. His squad forced the Wildcats to play at their pace.

Notre Dame executed on offense, limited turnovers and stayed out of foul trouble. 

The Kentucky Wildcats did none of the above.

The Fighting Irish showcased their experience and shooting skill, going 8-of-15 from beyond the arc. They won the rebounding battle 28-26 and kept Kentucky out of sync the entire game.

Moving forward, Notre Dame will play Brown on Dec. 8.

Kentucky will play Baylor on Dec. 1.
