Bluegrass romp: Kentucky blows out Abilene 79-44 at NCAAs

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Kentucky could afford to be down a man against NCAA Tournament newcomer Abilene Christian.

Going forward, the Wildcats are surely going to need that guy who was zipping around the arena on a scooter, most of his lower left leg covered by a hard cast.

With PJ Washington sidelined by a sprained foot, second-seeded Kentucky still romped past the small Texas school 79-44 on Thursday night - a huge mismatch that was over by halftime.
