No. 9 Kentucky gets another scare, holds off Utah Valley

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) John Calipari breathed a sigh of relief after his team survived another scare.

Ashton Hagans scored a career-high 26 points, and No. 9 Kentucky fought through another close game against what should have been a lesser opponent, beating Utah Valley 82-74 on Monday night.

"I'm happy we won," Calipari said.
