Tokoto missed a shot for the lead from near the top of the key.

No. 1 KENTUCKY 87, ROBERT MORRIS 49
LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Aaron Harrison scored 19 of his 28 points in the first half and Kentucky started all freshmen for the first time in rolling to a victory over Robert Morris.
After three games of starting four freshmen around sophomore 7-footer Willie Cauley-Stein, coach John Calipari rolled out a rookie lineup of Harrison and twin brother Andrew, James Young, Marcus Lee and Julius Randle. That look lasted just 51 seconds as Cauley-Stein replaced Lee, but the Wildcats (3-1) used other combinations of highly touted recruits.
Harrison ended up grabbing the spotlight instead of leading scorer Randle, shooting 7 of 12 from the field and making all 10 free throws. He also had four rebounds and three assists.
Randle added 10 points and 15 rebounds and Young had 10 points in the rematch of last spring's NIT game won by Robert Morris.
