Winston Bennett, who lives in Louisville and was averaging 5.5 points, scored a career-high 23 points to lead 13th-ranked Kentucky to a 69-64 victory over 15th-ranked Louisville today in Lexington, Ky.
"Nobody gets everybody," said Louisville Coach Denny Crum, who failed to recruit Bennett.
Crum noted his team was called for 22 fouls, Kentucky 12.
"They went to the free-throw line 18 more times than we did but that is better than it was the last time we were here," he said. "I wish I had a whistle. I would have called some of them differently, but I am prejudiced."
Kentucky (8-1) has won three of the last four games of the series and leads it by 12-5.
