LEXINGTON (AP) — Freshman forward Julius Randle posted a double-double and top-ranked Kentucky pulled away for a 76-42 exhibition victory over Transylvania on Friday night.


Shooting solidly but leading only 41-30 at halftime, Kentucky broke it open with an 18-2 run over the first 8 minutes of the second half. The Wildcats went on to make 15 of 26 from the field in the second half (57.7 percent) and finish 29 of 58.


Randle’s 16 points on 6-of-9 shooting and 12 rebounds led the way for Kentucky’s much-heralded freshmen class. Swingman James Young added nine points, five rebounds and five assists, guard Aaron Harrison scored eight points and center Dakari Johnson had nine points and eight rebounds.


Trevor Tiller scored 11 points with three 3-pointers for Transylvania, a Division III school located less than a mile from Rupp Arena. Logan Wade added 10 points.
