Mathies lifts No. 9 Kentucky women over No. 6 UT

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A'dia Mathies drove the lane and scored in
traffic with 4.2 seconds left to finish with a career-high 34
points and No. 9 Kentucky beat No. 6 Tennessee 61-60 Thursday night to snap the Lady Volunteers' 36-game Southeastern Conference
winning streak.

With Kentucky trailing 60-57, Mathies followed her own shot to
cut it to one with 46 seconds left.

After Tennessee (12-4, 3-1) was called for a charge and Kentucky
(15-2, 4-0) used a timeout, Mathies took the ball at halfcourt,
dribbled into the lane and hit a 7-foot floater off the glass in
the paint.

Kamiko Williams drove the length of the floor, but missed an
off-balance 16-footer as time expired.

Tennessee lost for the first time since falling 53-50 at Georgia
on Jan. 21, 2010.
