    LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Kentucky didn't need a record-setting performance from Jodie Meeks this time.

    Patrick Patterson returned from an ankle injury to score 19 points and freshman Darius Miller added a career-high 17 points and six assists as the Wildcats dominated Tennessee 77-58 on Saturday, sweeping the season series from the Volunteers to keep pace atop the crowded SEC East.

    Meeks, who had a school-record 54 points in a win at Knoxville last month, scored 14 points on 4-of-14 shooting. But the Wildcats (19-8, 8-4 Southeastern Conference) didn't need him to be Superman this time.

    Kentucky never trailed and was never threatened for most of the second half as the Volunteers (16-10, 7-5) struggled by shooting 32 percent from the field (20-for-63), including 4-for-24 3-pointers.

    Scotty Hopson led Tennessee with 14 points and J.P. Prince had 11 points.
