ST. LOUIS -- Julius Randle had 19 points and 15 rebounds, Aaron Harrison finished with 18 points and No. 8 seed Kentucky held on to beat Kansas State 56-49 on Friday night to earn a date with top-seeded Wichita State in the NCAA tournament. The preseason No. 1, Kentucky (25-10) is finally starting to live up to the expectations that came with its heralded recruiting class. John Caliparis bunch nearly knocked of Florida in the SEC title game last week and seemed to carry that momentum right into the Scottrade Center. Now, the question is whether it will continue on Sunday. The Shockers, on the top line of the Midwest Region, rolled over Cal Poly to improve to 35-0. Marcus Foster had 15 points, Shane Southwell scored 11 and Thomas Gipson finished with 10 for Kansas State (20-13), which started in a 1-0 hole after a technical for a dunk in pregame warm-ups. The No. 9 seed then struggled to hit from the perimeter against Kentuckys tall lineup. Kansas State was just 5 of 21 from 3-point range. Foster was 1 of 7. The victory is the start of what Kentucky hopes is an NCAA tournament of validation. The team stocked with highly recruited freshmen has been criticized for failing to live up to lofty expectations, losing several times to overmatched and undermanned opponents. Of course, all of that becomes moot when the NCAA tournament begins. Kentucky has won 21 of its last 22 games to open the dance, when the lights are brightest and the games mean the most. Meanwhile, Kansas State was in trouble even before its tournament began. Sophomore walk-on Brian Rohleder, who played only 31 minutes all season, earned a technical foul for that pre-game dunk. NCAA rules prohibit dunking with less than 20 minutes until tip, and Rohleders dunk came with 19:58 showing on the clock. Andrew Harrison made one of two free throws while fans from both schools showered the officials with derision, and Kentucky led 1-0 when the game finally started. The SEC tournament runner-up built on its advantage through the opening minutes, the Harrison twins each knocking down a series of outside shots. Kentucky pushed the lead to 29-17 with 2:23 to go on Randles basket, but Kansas State answered with six straight points to end the half. Bruce Webers team trimmed the lead to 35-33, only for Kentucky to regain control when Southwell was hit with a technical for arguing a no-call on a drive to the basket. Kentucky stretched its lead to 44-36 midway through the second half, and whenever its rival Wildcats threatened to get closer, Randle was there to answer the call. The bruising forward stuck back a miss to make it 46-38 with 8:02 remaining, converted a three-point play a few minutes later, and then scored again at the rim for a 51-40 advantage. Kansas State closed to 55-49 on Fosters off-balance 3-pointer with 24 seconds to go. But a team that replaced most of its key players from a season ago and defied expectations all year eventually ran out of time on its comeback bid.

The Sens didnt earn win their fifth win until Nov. 5 last season, going 4-6-4 out of the gate. Ottawas last two victories have come on home ice and the club will try to stay hot when it plays the third part of a four-game homestand tonight. The Sens were 18-17-6 as the host last season en route to missing the playoffs for the first time since 2011. The Senators picked up their most recent win in Saturdays matchup against the Columbus Blue Jackets. Ottawa coughed up an early 2-0 lead in the contest, but Mike Hoffmans goal midway through the third period proved to be the game- winner in a 3-2 victory. Ottawa grabbed a two-goal cushion after Erik Karlsson scored at the 7:02 mark of the second period. However, Nick Foligno and David Savard scored 41 seconds apart later in the period to even the score. The Blue Jackets would outshoot Ottawa, 17-10, in the third, but it was Hoffmans goal that proved to be the difference. Hoffman skated into the Columbus zone, made a nice move to split a pair of defenders and backhanded it over Sergei Bobrovsky for a 3-2 edge. It was the second point of the night for Hoffman, who recorded the primary assist on David Legwands goal in the opening period.dddddddddddd Robin Lehner stopped 38-of-40 shots in the win, improving his record to 2-0 this season.

The Battle of Ontario has been dominated by the Maple Leafs in recent years, with Ottawa losing nine of the last 11 encounters against its provincial neighbors. The Sens were able to halt a six-game slide in the series with a home victory in the last meeting on April 14, but Toronto still has won five of its past seven in Canadas capital city. Toronto ended a two-game slide on Tuesday, beating the New York Islanders 5-2 at Nassau Coliseum. The Maple Leafs hope to record consecutive wins for the second time this season when they make the final stop on a three-game road trip. Phil Kessel scored twice during a four-goal outburst in the second period to help the Leafs pull away from the Islanders. James van Riemsdyk, Roman Polak and David Clarkson also scored and Kessel had an assist for the Maple Leafs. Jonathan Bernier had 34 saves, including 24 over the last two periods after giving up two goals in the first. Bernie played well in net for us and we were able to get some goals for him, said Kessel. Kessel is leading Toronto with four goals and eight points this season and he is a point-per-game player against Ottawa during his career. The speedy American has 25 goals and 21 assists in 46 lifetime outings versus the Sens. James Reimer could get the start in net for Toronto. He boasts a 9-2-1 mark and a 1.98 GAA in his career against Ottawa.
