Two free throws by Taylor -- he was 15 for 17 at the line and 3 of 13 from the field -- stopped the spurt, but Teague had a dunk and Lamb hit consecutive 3s. Moments after an airball, Lamb nailed another 3 to make it 54-37 with 10:05 to play.
Lamb received a big hand from the boisterous Kentucky fans when he came out for a breather, and Darius Miller followed his teammate's lead with a 3-pointer of his own.
Kansas didn't get within single digits again until there were 29 seconds to go. Calipari came out onto the court to lead his players away when there was a brief scuffle on the baseline with 6:11 left.
Kentucky boasts the most wins in Division I with 2,054, while Kansas is second with 2,038.
The Wildcats lead the series 20-6 -- the last meeting came in the second round of the 2007 NCAA tournament, when top-seeded Kansas beat Kentucky 88-76 in Chicago.
