Ohio State upsets No. 4 Kentucky 74-67

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) -- Keita Bates-Diop scored 14 points and Ohio State held off a furious second-half rally by No. 4 Kentucky for a 74-67 victory on Saturday in the CBS Sports Classic at Barclays Center.

The Buckeyes (6-5) led by 16 points with 11:26 to play but had to withstand not only Kentucky's rally but a crowd of 16,311 mostly Wildcats' fans making so much noise it sounded like Rupp Arena.

Freshman Jamal Murray had a season-high 33 points for the Wildcats (9-2) and kept the rally going with 3-pointer after 3-pointer. He finished 7 of 9 from beyond the arc, all the makes in the second half.
