 Lexington,  KY (Sports  Network) -  Azia Bishop  recorded 17  points and  five
 rebounds off the bench as No. 5 Kentucky beat LSU, 73-60, on Sunday.
 
 Samarie  Walker  had 10 points and  13 rebounds, while A'dia Mathies scored 15
 points  for the Wildcats  (19-2, 7-1 SEC), who bounced back from a loss to No.
 18 South Carolina on Thursday.

 added  18 points for  the Lady Tigers (12-8, 3-4), who have lost four of their

 After  the  teams traded  blows for  much of the  first half, Kentucky finally
 distanced itself late in the frame. With 26 seconds left in the first half and
 the  game tied at  26, Bishop buried a 3-pointer, and then added a tip-in with
 11 seconds left to send the Wildcats into the break with a 31-26 edge.
 
 Kentucky  maintained its advantage throughout the second half, as the Wildcats
 shot  an efficient  50 percent  from  the field,  while limiting  LSU to  30.8
 percent  from  the floor, including 1-for-8  from three-point range to hang on
 for the victory.
