The eighth-ranked Kentucky Wildcats extended their winning streak to seven Tuesday with a 69-60 victory over the Texas A&M Aggies in College Station.

Kentucky put together one of their best shooting performances of conference play Tuesday as they shot 41.7% from the field, including shooting to a 45.5% from three-point range.

Immanuel Quickley led the way yet again for Kentucky as he scored a career-high 30 points after nailing eight three-pointers
.
Quickley’s 30 points marked the third straight game he scored at least 20 points and the 17th straight game finishing in double-digits. He also became the first Wildcat to score at least 30 points in regulation since Kevin Knox scored 34 points against West Virginia on Jan. 27, 2018.

While Quickley stole the show, EJ Montgomery also had a big night for the Cats as he scored eight points with 10 rebounds falling just short of a double-double.

Wendell Mitchell led the way for Texas A&M with 18 points while Savion Flagg (17) and Josh Nebo (14) also scored in double-digits.

Kentucky (23-5, 13-2) will be back in action Saturday when they host the Auburn Tigers at Rupp Arena with a chance to clinch at least a share of the SEC regular-season crown.
