No. 10 Kentucky rolls past Morehead State 81-45 in opener

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) John Calipari loved the cohesion, and it was just Kentucky's unveiling of virtually a whole new roster.

Brandon Boston Jr. had 15 points and seven rebounds, Devin Askew and Terrence Clarke each added 12 points and No. 10 Kentucky cruised past Morehead State 81-45 in the season opener Wednesday night.

Starting with more roster turnover than usual with 10 new faces, including seven freshmen and three transfers, the Wildcats were surprisingly solid in their first real action together. They never trailed and steadily built a double-digit lead that reached 34 points with about five minutes left.
