BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - Jennifer O'Neill scored 19 points and A'dia Mathies added 16 to help Kentucky hold off Delaware 69-62 Saturday in the Bridgeport regional semifinals, bringing to an end the stellar career of Elena Delle Donne.
It's the second straight season that Kentucky (30-5) has advanced to the regional final. The Wildcats, who already have a school record for victories, lost to UConn last season by 15 points.
Delle Donne had 33 points for Delaware (32-4) and finished her career as the fifth all-time leading scorer in NCAA history. She passed former stars Cheryl Miller, Chamique Holdsclaw and Maya Moore on Saturday.
She finished well short of Jackie Stiles' all-time scoring mark of 3,393 set at Southwest Missouri State from 1998-2001.
