UK Hoops Stuns 13th Ranked Lady Vols

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Eleia Roddy and Amani Franklin scored 18
points each as Kentucky beat No. 13 Tennessee 66-56 Thursday,
handing the struggling defending champion Lady Vols their first
defeat at Memorial Coliseum in 23 years.
The Wildcats (14-12, 4-7 Southeastern Conference) beat the Lady
Vols for just the second time in 30 meetings, preserving their
faint hopes of reaching the NCAA tournament. Kentucky came into the
game having lost six of seven, and beat a ranked opponent for the
first time this season.
Tennessee (18-8, 7-4) has now lost consecutive games for the
first time this season, following Monday's 62-54 defeat against No.
7 Duke.
Kentucky took advantage with a 15-2 run in the second half,
surprisingly after Roddy picked up her third foul and was sent to
the bench.
