The Kentucky Wildcats (11-5, 2-1 SEC) was able to pull away late from rival Tennessee Volunteers (8-7, 0-3 SEC) Tuesday night at Rupp Arena for a 75-65 win. 

Kentucky got an impressive game from Kyle Wiltjer as he poured in 17 points off the bench, most of which came down the stretch to help protect the lead for Kentucky. 

Tennessee was able to overcome almost no contribution from Jarnell Stokes, just four points and five rebounds, to take the lead with seven minutes remaining in the game, However, Kentucky used Wiltjer and star-freshman Nerlens Noel to propel them to the win.

Noel finished with 12 points, nine rebounds, four steals and six blocks in what seemed to be another ho-hum day at the office for the top recruit. 

Jordan McRae finished with 23 points for the Volunteers, the fourth time in a row he's scored over 20 points.
