LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky looks ready for its annual showdown with archrival Louisville.

Jodie Meeks scored 23 points and Patrick Patterson added 15 points and nine rebounds as the Wildcats rolled by Central Michigan 84-52 on Monday for their sixth straight win to setup a showdown with the No. 18 Cardinals on Sunday.

Freshman walk-on Landon Slone starred off the bench for the second straight game, scoring eight points to bring the Wildcats (11-3) to life after a dismal start.

Slone's energy sparked a 36-8 surge to end the first half as Kentucky held the Chippewas (3-9) without a field goal for more than 10 minutes.

Jacolby Hardiman led Central Michigan with 12 points and Marcus Van added 11 points and eight boards but the Chippewas had no answers when the Wildcats turned up the pressure. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
