KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Isaiah Jackson scored 16 points and Kentucky matched a season high with its third straight win, using an early run to top No. 19 Tennessee 70-55.

While Jackson was intimidating inside for the Wildcats (8-13, 7-7 SEC), Davion Mintz was accurate from the perimeter, hitting all five of his 3-point shots in the first half and finishing with 15 points.

Keion Brooks had 14 rebounds to go along with 10 points for Kentucky.

Victor Bailey scored 18 points, Keion Johnson had 15 and Yves Pons added 10 for the Volunteers (15-6, 8-6). Tennessee shot just 32% from the field.

Kentucky had a 15-0 run that made it 23-10. Mintz had two 3-pointers in that burst and Jacob Toppin had a pair of baskets.

Up 15 at halftime, Kentucky got the lead to 60-40 midway through the second half.
