Kentucky women beat Georgia to reach SEC final

DULUTH, Ga. (AP) - Jennifer O'Neill sank 3-pointers on each end of a 15-0 run early in the second half that gave Kentucky the lead, and the Wildcats rolled past Georgia 60-38 on Saturday night to earn a spot in the SEC tournament championship game.

DeNesha Stallworth had 18 points for No. 7 Kentucky (27-4), which will face No. 19 Texas A&M in Sunday night's final. The Wildcats, who lost to Tennessee in the 2010 and 2011 championship games, will play for their first championship since 1982.

Jasmine Hassell led No. 12 Georgia (25-6) with 17 points. Georgia, which made only 22.2 percent of its shots (14 of 63), led 24-19 at halftime and stretched the lead to seven points before Kentucky took control with its 15-0 run.

The Wildcats closed with a 13-0 run as Georgia didn't score in the final 6 minutes.
