LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - James Young scored 26 points, including five 3-pointers, that helped No. 4 Kentucky put away UT Arlington 105-76 on Tuesday night.

The Wildcats' 6-foot-6 swingman made his first three from long range to jump start an 8-of-14 shooting night and provide Kentucky's third different top scorer in as many games.

Young's hot shooting rubbed off on his talented fellow freshmen teammates. Julius Randle added 22 points with 10 rebounds, Andrew Harrison 15 and Marcus Lee 10 as Kentucky started an all-rookie lineup for the second consecutive game.

Willie Cauley-Stein added 14 points and 10 rebounds as Kentucky (4-1) shot 35 of 69 (51 percent) to win its inaugural matchup against UTA (2-3). The Wildcats also earned their second consecutive win since losing to Michigan State a week ago as the top-ranked team.

Brandon Edwards' 24 points led the Mavericks, who were outrebounded 46-34.
