ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Kenny Chery scored 18 points, including six in the go-ahead run, and No. 20 Baylor defeated No. 3 Kentucky 67-62 on Friday night in the same building where the NCAA Final Four will be played in April.

The young Wildcats (7-2) had a 50-41 lead when Julius Randle, one of three Kentucky freshmen playing in their home state, had a slam dunk with 13 minutes left.

Baylor (8-1) responded with a 15-5 run when Chery, the junior college transfer who is now the point guard, came up big. His two free throws with 6 minutes left put the Bears up 56-55 and they never trailed again.

Randle had 16 points for Kentucky while Aaron Harrison had 15 and James Young 14 with four 3-pointers.

Isaiah Austin and Cory Jefferson had 13 points each for the Bears.
