NEW YORK (AP) - Freshman John Wall scored a season-high 25 points, including 12 of Kentucky's last 15 in the game, and the fourth-ranked Wildcats beat No. 14 Connecticut 64-61 on Wednesday night in the SEC/Big East Invitational.

Wall lived up to his billing in his first appearance at Madison Square Garden, overcoming first-half foul trouble and dominating the game over the final 7½ minutes.

The Wildcats (9-0) moved John Calipari closer to one of the icons at the school that has more wins, 1,996, than any other program. The only coach to have a better start to his career at Kentucky was Adolph Rupp, who started 10-0 in 1931.

There were two totally different halves played in front of the crowd of 15,874, which seemed split down the middle.

Jerome Dyson had 17 points for the Huskies (6-2), who finished 14 of 24 from the free throw line, including 2 of 4 in the final 3 minutes.
