With UK watching its 21-point second-half lead dissolve to six, Mills fueled the team's offensive motors with three clutch passes. Two straight trips down the floor, the 6-foot-7 power forward, who replaced LeRon Ellis in the high post, took the ball near the top of the key, faced the basket and found Reggie Hanson breaking loose underneath. The clincher came when a Mills-to-Ellis pass was quickly converted into a two.-hand-behind-the-back slam, giving UK and 81-69 lead. Ellis, who paced the 'Cats with 23 points, missed only once in 11 attempts. Hanson and Mills were next with 19 each followed by guard Derrick Miller with a 16-point showing. Keith Rawls led the Governors with 28 points. Vincent Brooks also was in double figures with 10 points. Austin Peay was coached by former UK assistant Lake Kelly, who criticized his team for a "horrible" first half, when the Govs were outscored, 45-30, by the 'Cats. The victory gave the 'Cats a 5-6 record. i^ln compliance with a court order, UK released the full text of the four remaining NCAA allegations contained in the NCAA's Supplemental Official Inquiry against the school's basketball program.

Kentucky 104, Furman 73 (Continued from page 5) on a layup by Hanson, a trey and a layup by Brassow. Brent Williams tied the score at 16-all with a dunk, but the Wildcats went ahead to stay, 23-16, on a seven-footer by Woods, two free throws by Pelphrey and a trey by Brassow. Aided by a 25-2 spurt that was fueled by three-pointers, they increased the margin to 54-32 at halftime, going into the intermission with a 47.6 percent shooting percentage on 20 of 42 field goal attempts. They were nine of 24 for 37.5 percent from three-point range. Responding to the urging of 22,841 faithful in Rupp Arena, the Wildcats got their record-19th trey with 14 seconds remaining on a whirling shot by walk-on junior Braddy, who was fouled on the shot. His four-point play pushed the Wildcat lead to 104-71. Pitino said the Paladins may have been a little tired after a 20-hour return from Hawaii Sunday night and a six-hour bus ride to Lexington. However, Estes refused to blame fatigue for the defeat, Furman's fifth in eight games. "We were down," he said, "they were good and that makes for a 40-point game. We didn't play well. We have a much better team than we showed tonight." Pitino also pointed out that Furman played a good game at Dayton earlier in the season, losing to a team that presses continuously like "We were down, they were good and that makes for a 40-point game. We didn't play well. We have a much better team than we showed tonight. "We anticipated they would shoot the three better than Dayton, but not press as well. Kentucky varies their presses a little more. We never could get into a pattern." —Furman coach Butch Estes Kentucky. Furman committed a season-high 23 turnovers in that game. "We anticipated they would shoot the three better than Dayton," Estes said, "but not press as well. Kentucky varies their presses a little more. We never could get into a pattern." Pitino was especially pleased with the 50 deflections that his team had, including 29 at halftime. "That's unheard of," he said. "You don't get that unless you're really pouring it out. I haven't had too many teams get 50."
