No. 2 Kentucky anticipated to bounce again in opposition to Southern Illinois

Fans, naturally, hoped for redemption in their second game of the season against Southern Illinois after being humiliatingly manhandled by Duke, but the Wildcats got off to a slow start again-they were crippled by poor ball movement and a slew of unnecessary turnovers.

Kentucky improves to 102-14 all-time in home openers with the win.

United Kingdom improved to 15-0 at home as the No. 2 Associated Press ranked team under Calipari.

Kentucky hosts North Dakota on Wednesday in the first meeting between the schools. That game is slated for a 9 p.m. tip on the SEC Network.

Kentucky started Immanuel Quickley, Tyler Herro, Keldon Johnson, PJ Washington and Reid Travis.

Quickley made his first career collegiate start.

Immanuel Quickley replaces Ashton Hagans in the starting lineup for United Kingdom from the Duke game.

SIU took an early 2-0 lead with a turnaround jumper from Kavion Pippen. The starting United Kingdom post men - Travis six points, five rebounds; Washington three points, six rebounds - never really got untracked. Cats have a ridiculous 43-17 advantage on the glass. United Kingdom did not commit a turnover until Quickley charged with 15:50 left. Southern Illinois leads 17-13.

SIU's lead was in large part to United Kingdom turning the ball over nine times on its first 17 possessions.

The Wildcats tied it up at 19 apiece with 6:05 to go on a nice sequence from one end to the other. Nick Richards swatted a Saluki shot attempt, which was rebounded by Washington.

ABC senior meteorologist Rob Marciano told Sky News that a "lull in the winds" was expected on Saturday but would not last long. Fallon went back to his property, where he, and his parents and their animals weathered the fire with a garden hose.

Quade Green, who didn't make a shot against Duke, scored 14 points against the Salukis. Freshman Quickley finished with 15 points, sophomore Green with 14.

Senior guard Sean Lloyd Jr made a layup to extend the SIU lead out to 42-37 with just under 15 minutes left in the game. Then E.J. Montgomery gave the Cats the lead 47-46 with a follow shot.

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - David Skara scored 16 points and Clemson opened with two straight wins for the 17th time in 18 years.

Better care of the ball (only three turnovers in the first 12 minutes of the second half) helped Kentucky take a 55-50 lead with 8:54 left. United Kingdom is shooting 47.6 in the second half and 44.4 percent for the game.

The halftime lead might have been greater had Kentucky not committed 14 turnovers, which was just one shy of the number the Cats committed against Duke earlier in the week.

The 14 turnovers tied the most miscues under Calipari in a half since committing 14 against Sam Houston State on November 19, 2009. Only five second-half turnovers was an improvement, though.

After four free throws by the Salukis Southern reclaimed the lead 34-32 early in the second half.

He finished with 14 points, and Zaccary Douglas had 12.

United Kingdom took the recaptured the lead on the next possession when Montgomery followed up a Green miss. The team's leading scorer last season, Marcquise Reed, was held to six points on 1-of-7 shooting.
