LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) Oscar Tshiebwe wasn't fazed by being a foul away from having to leave the game, because he was playing smarter.
"I wanted my head to stay in the game," said Tshiebwe, who finished with four fouls and sat for several minutes in the first half. "Coming back, I was kind of with the mentality of win the game and be careful. Coach told me that if you see you cannot get it, don't reach, just go back."
Tshiebwe scored 18 of his 23 points after halftime despite that foul trouble, TyTy Washington Jr. added 14 points and both Wildcats keyed small runs to help No. 10 Kentucky top Southern 76-64 on Tuesday night for its seventh consecutive victory.
