The Kentucky women’s basketball team ran out of ammunition against South Carolina.
Playing without Taylor Murray, Kentucky trailed by as many as 14 in the third quarter, but they refused to relent. Kentucky closed the third quarter on a 13-3 run. They hung around and made it a 75-73 game with 4:10 to play, but it was not enough upset South Carolina.
As usual, Evelyn Akhator and Makayla Epps were terrific. Epps led all scorers with 31 points, Akhator had 24 points and 11 rebounds, but Kentucky simply couldn’t knock down enough outside shots to win, just 2 of 19 on the night (10.5%).
More from Greenville is on the way.
