Coach John Calipari picked up a couple of early technicals and was bounced before the game hit the three-minute mark, but it didn’t make a difference as his No. 22 Kentucky team rolled to an 89-62 road victory over South Carolina on Saturday afternoon.

The Wildcats (19-6, 9-3 SEC) dominated the game from about the midway point of the first half and blew the doors open early in the second led by stellar play from guards Tyler Ulis and Jamal Murray.

Ulis set a career high in points and assists, leading all scorers with 27 points and 12 assists.

Murray added 26 points of his own in the rout.

South Carolina (21-4, 8-4 SEC) came into the game off back-to-back big wins at No. 15 Texas A&M and at home against LSU, but Frank Martin’s team never found its way into the contest.

Michael Carrera led the Gamecocks with 25 points, the lone bright spot, in an otherwise terrible afternoon.

With the win, Kentucky currently sits alone atop the SEC standings.
