In addition to the career-tying 23 points from Crawford and the 17 points from Morris, fellow junior Ramel Bradley chipped in with 15 points on 5-7 shooting, all from behind the 3-point arc. Bradley added six assists and two steals against only one turnover in the contest. Crawford was 9-12 from the field, including 3-5 from 3-point range. Jodie Meeks was the 4th Wildcat in double digits with 12 points off the bench, while Perry Stevenson also chipped in with 8 in a reserve role.
Kentucky played twelve players in the game, with eleven players playing seven minutes or more as coach Tubby Smith freely substituted in the second half as the lead mounted no matter what players took the court. With the victory, Kentucky moves to 15-3 (4-0), and will return home to face Vanderbilt Saturday afternoon. South Carolina (10-6, 0-3) returns to action to face no. 22 Tennessee in Knoxville Saturday.
