NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Darius Miller scored a career-high 20 points and top-seeded Kentucky made easy work of No. 9 Wake Forest during a 90-60 rout Saturday night in the second round of the NCAA tournament.
It was the second blowout in two games for the Wildcats (34-2), who crushed East Tennessee State 100-71 in their opener.
Miller scored 16 points in the first half to help the Wildcats build an early double-digit lead that ballooned beyond 30 in the second half.
DeMarcus Cousins added 19 points for Kentucky, while John Wall scored 14 and Eric Bledsoe 13.
Al-Farouq Aminu led Wake Forest (20-11) with 16 points.
Kentucky moves on to play the winner of Sunday's game between Cornell and Wisconsin in the East Regional semifinals next week at Syracuse, N.Y.
