UK Hoops enjoys record-setting win over Jacksonville St.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky forced 48 turnovers Tuesday,
setting a women's basketball school record in the Wildcats' 100-25
win over Jacksonville State.
The Wildcats' (2-0) full-court pressure defense wore down
Jacksonville State from the opening tip. After the Gamecocks scored
the first game's first basket, Kentucky fired off a 22-0 run that
included 13 forced turnovers.
Kentucky's defense also tied a school record with 25 points
allowed in a game.
A'dia Mathies and Bernisha Pinkett each led the Wildcats with 18
points, and Mathies led all rebounders with 10.
After leading 49-13 at halftime, Kentucky opened the second half
on a 17-2 run to spread the lead to 66-15.
The previous school record for turnovers forced in a game was
43, which Kentucky did Jan. 3, 2000 against Winthrop.
Briana Morrow had eight points for the Gamecocks (0-2).
