(Owensboro, Ky) – Streak continues and breaks the century mark! With the 114-76 win at the Danville Riverhawks, the Kentucky Mavericks have now won 100 straight wins, led by Cordarius Johnson with 21 points.

Kentucky jumped to a quick 8-4 lead in the first two minutes before Danville went on a run to take the lead 12-15. The Riverhawks did not give the lead back, just outpacing the Mavericks to lead after the first quarter 28-25.

The second quarter stayed even for a while with Danville keeping a small lead on the Mavericks until less than two minutes to go. The Mavericks outscored the Riverhawks 8-2 to end the first half. It gave Kentucky a 50-46 lead, their biggest of the first half.

The third quarter was back to typical Maverick basketball, extending their lead to 18 with a 20-6 run. They kept that pace leading after the third quarter 86-65, the biggest lead of the game.

With nothing left to do but to finish the game without injury, the Mavericks coasted in the fourth quarter, extending their lead to a massive 38 point lead. That lead is the largest margin of victory for the Mavericks this season.

The game was a clear example of how Kentucky plays basketball, allowing a season low 76 points. After allowing Ben Vozzola to score 20 point in the first half, the Mavericks shut him down to only four free throw in the second half. Vozzola was the leading scorer for the game with 24 points.

Anthony “The Jet” Jackson chipped in with 20 points while big man Lamar Sanders came off the bench to put up 16 points, a season high for the Lamar University alum.
