LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) No. 5 Kentucky got the strong start it sought against No. 1 Tennessee and for a moment was blowing out the Volunteers.

Most important was that the Wildcats finished off the Vols on a national stage, just what they needed days after letting one slip away.

PJ Washington scored 23 points, Keldon Johnson added 19 and Kentucky beat Tennessee 86-69 Saturday night to end the Volunteers' school-record, 19-game winning streak.
