LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Freshman Anthony Davis had 18 points, eight rebounds and seven blocked shots as top-ranked Kentucky beat Tennessee 69-44 on Tuesday night to extend the Wildcats' home winning streak to 48 games.

Kentucky (22-1, 8-0 Southeastern Conference) got off to a sizzling start by hitting its first 11 shots over the opening 11 minutes as the Wildcats won their 14th straight overall in another dominating performance.

The 6-foot-10 Davis has been the biggest star among the Wildcats' starting group of three freshmen and two sophomores who expect to play for a national title in a little over two months.

The Volunteers (10-12, 2-5) were led by Renaldo Woolridge, who hit a career-best five 3-pointers and tied his career-high with 17 points.
