            === Kentucky sets school record in win over Florida ===
 
 Lexington,  KY  (Sports Network)  - A'dia  Mathies scored 20  points and No. 6
 Kentucky  set a school  record with their 12th straight win in a 76-69 victory
 over Florida in the SEC opener for both teams.
 
 Jennifer  O'Neill and  DeNesha Stallworth each netted 17 points and Stallworth
 pulled  down 10 rebounds  for the Wildcats (13-1, 1-0 SEC), who also matched a
 program-best 30th straight home victory.
 
 Jaterra  Bonds  scored 21 points, January  Miller added 17 and Jennifer George
 logged  14 points  and 11 rebounds for  Florida (11-4, 0-1), which had won six
 straight coming in.
 
 George's  putback gave  Florida its first and only lead, 35-34, with under two
 minutes  left in the  first half, but a jumper by Bria Goss and a 3-pointer by
 Kastine Evans gave the Wildcats a 39-35 edge at the break.
 
 Kentucky opened the second half on a 7-0 run to build a double-digit lead, but
 the Gators battled back and were within two, 60-58, with six minutes left.
 
 Florida  missed  its next  five shots,  and after O'Neill  went 1-for-2 at the
 line,  Mathies hit  from  long  range and  Stallworth  scored  inside to  push
 Kentucky's lead to 66-58.
 
 The  Wildcats  shot 6-of-9  from the foul  line in the  final minute to secure
 their longest home winning streak since winning 30 in a row from Feb. 12, 1980
 - Jan. 31, 1982.
