    complaints about the top-ranked Wildcats latest domination featuring more
    examples of Malik Monks skills.Monk scored a career-high 26 points, DeAaron Fox
    added 16 and Kentucky routed UT-Martin 111-76 on Friday night, the most points
    scored in the Calipari Era.The taller Wildcats overcame a slow shooting start
    and 16-15 deficit to the athletic Skyhawks before rolling to a season-high
    victory margin. Kentucky (6-0) shot a season-best 55 percent from the field by
    controlling the paint 54-28 and the boards 48-26, along with recording 24
    assists.They got our best today, Calipari said. And the way we moved the ball --
    I kind of like coaching against zone and I want my team to feel like if they
    play zone, thats a good thing. Lets go do this.Monks 10-of-17 shooting led the
    way with Fox making 7 of 12 from the field. Monk has scored at least 23 points
    in three of his past four games and this effort featured 10 over a 1:51 stretch
    in the second half highlighted by back-to-back dunks. He also jumped high to
    swat a lob pass out of bounds.The Wildcats freshman guard wasnt available
    afterward, but teammates lobbed plenty of praise at Monk.I would say hes fired
    up, said senior guard Dominique Hawkins, who had a career-best nine assists
    along with six points. Hes the most exciting athlete Ive played with on a team.
    I dont know how he blocked that lob. He just jumped up there, cuffed it and
    threw it.Monk wasnt the only Wildcat to stand out.Wenyen Gabriel and Bam
    Adebayo, who had 12 rebounds, each had a career-high 15 points for Kentucky,
    which won the game that was part of a matchup of unbeaten teams in the four-game
    Bluegrass Showcase.Matthew Butler scored 15 points and Jacolby Mobley had 14 for
    UT Martin (5-2), which shot just 33 percent in the second half and 41 percent
    overall in having its five-game winning streak stopped.THE BIG PICTUREUT Martin:
    Despite giving away several inches inside against Kentucky, the Skyhawks
    quickness helped their zone work early on. But they soon began sending Kentucky
    to the free throw line in the first half and were eventually worn down by
    Kentuckys height and quickness. Their length can be very problematic. It was
    problematic for us, first-year coach Anthony Stewart said. We thought possibly
    wed have a chance with our maturity and our older guys against some younger
    guys. It just didnt work out that way tonight.Kentucky: The Wildcats led by as
    many as 48 points in the second half en route to their sixth win by at least 21
    points, which hasnt been done since the 1947-48 Fabulous Five won their first
    six games by at least 24. Calipari joked that this team might be the Fabulous
    Nine but noted that the fast starts depend on the competition. The docket gets
    much tougher with Arizona State and UCLA next week and rival Louisville ahead in
    December, so this was the preparation Kentucky needed. Our run of games is going
    to be coming now, and its how I believe we have to schedule, Calipari added.POLL
    IMPLICATIONSKentuckys lofty perch appears safe through Mondays next poll but
    will be tested with back-to-back games against Pac-12 members Arizona State and
    UCLA.INJURY REPORTSenior Derek Willis played just 8 minutes and Calipari said he
    sprained his right thumb. Sophomore guard Isaiah Briscoe meanwhile missed his
    second straight game and was scheduled to undergo an MRI after the game on his
    injured back.UP NEXTUT Martin: Returns home from the three-game road swing to
    host Florida Atlantic on Tuesday.Kentucky: Faces Arizona State on Monday night
    in the Atlantis Showcase in the Bahamas. The Wildcats are 4-0 against the Sun
    Devils including last years 72-58 win in Lexington.---AP College Basketball: Clearance

    from MVP awards to NBA championships, the hootin and hollerin coming from the

    tossed a penalty flag on Kelce and the tight end was tossed from the game.Chiefs
