WOW!! What a win!
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Jodie Meeks now sits at the top of Kentucky's illustrious record book, just above names like Dan Issel, Cliff Hagan and Bob Burrow. Jodie Meeks drove to the basket for two of his school-record 54 points on Tuesday night at Tennessee.
Meeks scored a school record 54 points, leading Kentucky to a 90-72 victory over rival Tennessee in Thompson-Boling Arena. Meeks also set a school record with 10 three-pointers, breaking a record he tied earlier this season. It was Meeks' second game this season of more than 40 points. The Cats used a 15-3 run early in the second half to claim a 66-50 lead, watched it sliced to 71-64 with six minutes left and then sat back and enjoyed the show as Meeks buried back-to-back threes to put the game out of reach.
