No. 3 Kentucky beats Bama

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - John Wall had 22 points and 10 rebounds for his first double-double, and fellow freshman DeMarcus Cousins got his seventh in a row, as No. 3 Kentucky outmuscled Alabama 66-55 on Tuesday night.

With 16 points and 13 rebounds, Cousins extended his UK freshman record with 15 double-doubles. The last Kentucky player to get seven in a row was Jim Andrews, who had a team-record 10 straight in 1973.

Five of Cousins' rebounds were on the offensive end, while all of Wall's career-high 10 were on defense.

With the victory, Kentucky (23-1, 8-1) remained in first place in the Southeastern Conference East Division, one game ahead of Vanderbilt, which beat Tennessee on Tuesday.

Tony Mitchell had 13 points for Alabama (13-11, 3-7).

Cousins, who grew up in Mobile, Ala., hit a one-handed heave in traffic to give Kentucky its largest lead, 46-32.
