MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) - Bria Goss scored 16 points and Kastine Evans added 15 as the seventh-ranked Kentucky Wildcats beat Middle Tennessee 84-72 on Sunday.
Kentucky (6-0) had lost in its last two visits to Murphy Center against Middle Tennessee coach Rick Insell, but the big-scoring Wildcats left with the program's first win here since Jan. 8, 1989.
The Wildcats opened by hitting their first five shots and took control with nine straight points capped by a steal by Goss and a layup for a 12-3 lead. They led by as much as 12 when Goss hit a 3-pointer midway through the half for a 27-15 lead and were up 41-34 at halftime.
Jennifer O'Neill also had 14 points for Kentucky, and Samarie Walker had 12.
Ebony Rowe, a native of Lexington, Ky., scored 28 points for Middle Tennessee (1-3).
