A young Kentucky team was in its first true road game of the season saw the raucous enviornment at Assembly Hall was as a little too much to handle. Wildcats’ stars Terrence Jones and Anthony Davis combined for 4 and 6 points, respectively, and despite shooting better overall from the field, Kentucky hit only two 3-pointers to Indiana’s nine.

The last of those nine for Indiana was Watford’s. After lgeadin the team in scoring a year ago, the junior Watford was averaging just 10.4 ppg entering Saturday’s game. But after a season-high 20 points, he appears back and so are the Hoosiers.

Indiana won 12, 10 and six games the last three seasons, but is now off to a 9-0 start, its best since 1989-90.
