UK Hoops team enters Elite 8

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A'dia Mathies scored 21 points and a
quicker, more athletic Kentucky roared past top-seeded Nebraska
76-67 on Sunday night and into the finals of the Kansas City
Regional.
The Wildcats (28-7), extending their school-record win total,
opened the second half on an 11-1 run and led by as many as 19
points over the Big 12 champion Huskers, who saw an abrupt end to
the most successful season in the history of their own program.
Several thousand red-clad Nebraska fans tried to help fuel a
late rally by the Huskers (32-2) when Lindsey Moore's 3-pointer cut
the lead to 68-56 with 3:52 to go. But the Wildcats, picked 11th in
the Southeastern Conference preseason poll, held on to make their
first regional final, where they'll meet Oklahoma.
Dominique Kelley had 22 points for Nebraska and Kelsey Griffin
added 15 points and 12 rebounds.
