UK women whip Miami, 92-53

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Bernisha Pinkett had career highs of 21 points and 10 rebounds, A'dia Mathies added 14 points and No. 9 Kentucky rolled past Miami (Ohio) 92-53 on Wednesday.

DeNesha Stallworth scored 12 points and had eight rebounds for Kentucky (5-1), which won its 25th straight home game. Bria Goss also had 12 points.

A morning tipoff before 2,000 sixth-graders may have caused a sluggish start before the Wildcats' defense got going. Kentucky ended up holding Miami (3-3) to 33 percent shooting while forcing 22 turnovers leading to 29 points.

Courtney Osborn scored a game-high 25 points for the RedHawks, who lost their second straight and fell to 2-16 against Kentucky.

Pinkett's 12 first-half points provided the spark en route to 8-of-13 shooting and the junior's highest output since scoring 18 points twice last season.
