LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - -

Jamal Murray scored 22 points, Skal Labissiere added 18 and No. 22 Kentucky shot 53 percent Saturday to race past LSU 94-77 and claim a share of the Southeastern Conference regular-season title.
    
The Wildcats (23-8, 13-5 SEC) finished tied with Texas A&M and will have the No. 2 seed in next week's tournament in Nashville, Tennessee. They will be coming off a victory marked by good shooting and strong rebounding that avenged an earlier loss to the Tigers.
    
Murray's 6-of-12 shooting with four 3-pointers led the way for Kentucky. Labissiere posted his second-highest scoring total this season along with nine rebounds.
    
Kentucky was also backed by Tyler Ulis with 14 points and 14 assists, Marcus Lee with 12 points and 10 assists and Alex Poythress with 12 points. The Wildcats shot better than 50 percent in both halves and controlled the boards 45-29.
    
Tim Quarterman's 23 points led LSU (18-13, 11-7 SEC).
