LEXINGTON, KY (RNN) – The Kentucky Wildcats recovered from their last loss to win at home against the Boise State Broncos 70-55 Tuesday night.

The visiting Broncos (8-1) played closely early on, only to be left trailing by 10 points at the end of the first half. While the Broncos were perfect from the free throw line (six-for-six at the line), they only shot 31 percent from field goal range and were outrebounded 43-27 by the home team.

Kentucky (8-2) was outshone from 3-point range, only making 24 percent of their long-range shots, compared to Boise State's 29 percent.

The Wildcats had four players score in double-digits, including leading scorer guard James Young scoring 21 points with nine rebounds. Forward Julius Randle scored 17 points and 11 rebounds for his eighth double-double of the year.

Kentucky's next game will be against No. 18-ranked North Carolina Tar Heels on Saturday, Dec. 14.
