The Wildcats have plenty of weapons and Teague's role as point guard has been one of the hardest. He's had to learn under coach John Calipari and acknowledged earlier that he worried so much about it he had sleepless nights.
Now he and his teammates will get another crack at the Hoosiers, who beat Kentucky on a last-second shot in December when the 'Cats committed a defensive lapse that cost them on the final play.
Among the players who've improved the most since then is Teague, often overshadowed and compared to Calipari's former point guards at Kentucky and Memphis, including John Wall, Brandon Knight, Derrick Rose and Tyreke Evans.
Royce White, who almost transferred to Kentucky, scored 23 points and had nine rebounds before fouling out with 4:32 left for Iowa State (23-11), which beat defending national champion Connecticut on Thursday night.
But the Cyclones couldn't contend with Kentucky's overwhelming offense and smothering defense after rallying from a 12-point halftime deficit to tie at 42-all with 16:23 left.
Teague and Kentucky turned up the pressure with their big burst.
Terrence Jones hit a basket, Miller added another and Jones flipped an alley-oop to Davis. After two free throws by Scott Christopherson, the Wildcats ran off 16 straight points that made it 62-42.
