DeMarcus Cousins and Patrick Patterson scored 18 points apiece and the third-ranked Wildcats became the first team in NCAA history to reach the 2,000-win plateau with an 88-44 romp Monday night over visiting Drexel.
Kentucky improved to 2,000-635-1 in 107 seasons. North Carolina is next on the list with 1,992 wins, while Kansas has 1,980.
"We weren't a part of many of those 2,000 wins and we had a job to do and that was drag us across the line before that other blue team got there," coach John Calipari said. "This is a special moment for this program."
