The Kentucky Wildcats have continued their season-long win streak. In fact, they’ve become the first Division I men’s basketball team to start their season 36-0.

Now, they are just four games away from making history. If they continue their quest to be undefeated, they would be 40-0, and have the best win record ever in a season.

The Wildcats defeated the Cincinnati Bearcats, 64-51, from the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, Kentucky. Now, they’ll watch to see who their next opponent will be next Thursday night.

They scored 31 points in the first half, and 33 in the second half. The Bearcats, on the other hand, had 24 in the first and 27 in the second.

Troy Caupain led the Bearcats with 13 points. He was the only Cincinnati player with double-digits. Octavius Ellis was the closest with 9.

Aaron Harrison, who banged up his wrist, led the Wildcats with 13 points, as well. Trey Lyles also had 11 points, as these two were the only players to score double digits.
