UK Hoops opens season with a win

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Victoria Dunlap and A'Dia Mathies scored
18 points apiece in helping No. 9 Kentucky pull away for an 82-48
win over Morehead State on Friday.
The Wildcats put together a 18-0 run early in the second half to
break open a close game.
Kentucky held the Eagles to 28 percent shooting and forced 36
turnovers to overcome some sloppy play of its own.
It wasn't all good news for the Wildcats.
Junior guard Keyla Snowden went down with a right leg injury in
the first half. Kentucky is already playing without senior point
guard Amber Smith, who is out indefinitely after tearing the
anterior cruciate ligament in her right knee over the summer.
Ashar Harris led Morehead State, a member of the Ohio Valley
Conference, with 12 points but the Eagles were overwhelmed by
Kentucky's pressure in the second half.
