LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - The UK Hoops team won its 31st consecutive home game Thursday night, setting a new school record. The Cats rallied in 2nd half for a 65-62 win over Texas A&M. UK is also riding a school record 14 game winning streak.
A'dia Mathies scored 23 points and Jennifer O'Neill added 15 points as the Wildcats (15-1, 3-0 SEC) extended school-record winning streaks of 14 games overall and 31 in a row at home.
Texas A&M shot 59 percent (17 of 29) in the first half behind a slew of layups from Kelsey Bone and Kristi Bellock for a 37-31 halftime lead. But Kentucky's improved defense wore down the Aggies and limited them to just 32 percent shooting (10 of 31) after that.
Bone's 27 points led Texas A&M (12-5, 2-1).
