UK Hoops Wins 13th Straight

The 6th ranked Kentucky women’s basketball team was able to survive their first SEC road test and defeat Alabama 87-70. The Cats are now 14-1 and 2-0 in the SEC. UK was paced by their dominating post presence of Samarie Walker and DeNesha Stallworth who both finished with double-doubles. Defending SEC Player of the Year A’dia Mathies also chipped in with 17 points, all in the second half and 15 of them from behind the arc.

Every time the Cats play the Tide it’s bound to be an ugly, ugly game. After splitting the season series a year ago, UK got off to a shaky start in which they couldn’t find a way to seperate themselves from Bama. The Wildcats used a huge second half to seal the deal at the end, behind strong performances from their upperclassmen. Kentucky wasn’t able to turn Alabama over as much as they would have hoped, and ended up losing the turnover battle for the first time in a long time. Fouling was a huge issue today, as Stallworth, Mathies, Walker, and O’Neill all had to sit on the bench extensive minutes due to their physicality, and was a big reason for Kentucky’s slow start.

Kentucky will hit the court again on Thursday night, as they set their eyes on the school record home winning streak of 31. The Cats will face the Texas A&M Aggies, a team who is two years removed from a national championship run. Make sure to be there at Memorial Coliseum at 6…this team is worth it.
