LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) Andrew Harrison and Trey Lyles each scored 18 points, and top-ranked Kentucky rolled past No. 18 Arkansas 84-67 Saturday to clinch the Southeastern Conference regular-season title.

The long-awaited marquee matchup of the SEC's top two teams belonged to the undefeated Wildcats (29-0, 16-0) on both ends as they earned their 46th league title and halted a three-game losing streak against the Razorbacks (23-6, 12-4). Kentucky's league-leading defense held the conference's top scoring team to just 38 percent shooting and 12 points below its average.

The Wildcats meanwhile shot 48 percent from the field and outrebounded the Razorbacks 38-32, among other statistics, to extend their best-ever start.
