LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - DeNesha Stallworth scored 18 points and made two game-clinching free throws with 50.7 seconds remaining to lift No. 12 Kentucky to a 65-63 win over Vanderbilt Sunday.

Kentucky (22-7, 10-6 Southeastern Conference) earned a No. 4 seed and a double bye for the SEC Tournament. Vanderbilt is seeded eighth and plays Georgia Thursday.

Janee Thompson's jumper with 1:19 remaining broke a 56-56 deadlock and gave the Wildcats a 58-56 lead, which stood despite a late surge by the Commodores. Bria Goss made five of six free throws in the last 38 seconds to fend off Vanderbilt, which rallied from a 17-point deficit in the first half.

Goss' missed free throw came with 12.9 seconds remaining, but Vanderbilt's Jasmine Jenkins missed a driving jumper at the buzzer.

Christina Foggie led the Commodores (18-11, 7-9) with 23 points. Foggie made four of her team's six 3-pointers. Jasmine Lister added 15 for Vanderbilt.
