LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Archie Goodwin scored 22 points, Nerlens Noel added 17 and Alex Poythress had 11 as No. 3 Kentucky's highly touted freshman class led five Wildcats in double figures in a 93-61 exhibition victory over Northwood on Thursday night.
Noel added 11 rebounds and four blocks for the Wildcats, who got 15 points from sophomore guard Ryan Harrow and 12 from sophomore forward Kyle Wiltjer. Willie Cauley-Stein, another freshman, had eight.
For the Wildcats' freshmen - following in the footsteps of a team that won last season's NCAA championship with rookies Anthony Davis and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist - the debut was even better than expected.
Kentucky shot 61 percent and outrebounded Northwood 42-30, holding the Seahawks to 36 percent shooting. The Wildcats committed 17 turnovers, but coach John Calipari expected that from his rookies, which he used in 11 combinations.
Forward Masse Doumbe scored 25 points for Northwood, which plays in the NAIA.
