NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Willie Cauley-Stein scored 15 points, and No. 14 Kentucky beat Vanderbilt 71-62 Saturday for the Wildcats' fourth straight victory.

Aaron Harrison added 14 points and Andrew Harrison 10 and Kentucky (12-3, 2-0) started off a two-game road swing through the Southeastern Conference with a win. Julius Randle had 10 of his 11 rebounds in the first half.

Kentucky coach John Calipari has nine freshmen, the same number of total players Vanderbilt coach Kevin Stallings has available right now with leading scorer Eric McClellan first suspended from the university Wednesday before being dismissed from the program on Friday.

That left senior Rod Odom as Vandy's leading scorer averaging 13.8 points a game, and he spent 10 minutes of the first half on the bench because of foul trouble. He finished with five points.

Damian Jones had a game-high 18 points for Vanderbilt. Kyle Fuller had 17 points and 10 assists, and Dai-Jon Parker added 17.
