LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) Point guard Ryan Harrow finished with 15 points and a season-high eight assists, and Kentucky rolled Eastern Michigan for a 90-38 win Wednesday night in the Wildcats' final nonconference game of the season.

Harrow scored in double figures for his fourth straight game after tallying a total of 14 points in his first five of the season.

Kentucky (9-4) never struggled against the Eagles (7-6), using nine unanswered points to create separation early and a 17-2 run midway through the first half to pull away.

The Wildcats' defense did not allow Eastern Michigan to score on consecutive possessions in the first half.

Harrow missed an early game this season while suffering from flu-like symptoms and then missed three games in a row with an undisclosed family issue. He's scored at least 12 points a game since being re-inserted into Kentucky's starting five.

Glenn Bryant led the Eagles with 10 points.
