LEXINGTON, Ky. -- No. 5 Kentucky got 27 points from freshman guard Malik Monk (pictured above) en route to an 85-69 win over No. 24 South Carolina on Saturday at Rupp Arena in a matchup between the SEC's co-leaders.
Monk came up big for the Wildcats, who held off a strong individual performance by the Gamecocks' Sindarius Thornwell. The senior guard scored a game-high 34 points, but it wasn't enough to produce an upset.
