                  === No. 13 Georgia upends No. 8 Kentucky ===
 
 Lexington, KY (Sports Network) - Khaalidah Miller scored a game-high 25 points
 to  lead  No. 13  Georgia  past  eighth-ranked  Kentucky, 75-71,  at  Memorial
 Coliseum.
 
 Anne  Marie  Armstrong and Jasmine  James added 12  points apiece for the Lady
 Bulldogs (19-3, 7-2 SEC), who have won three straight.
 
 Jennifer  O'Neill  and A'dia Mathies netted  18 points apiece to pace Kentucky
 (19-3, 7-2), which lost for the second time in three games.
 
 Samarie  Walker posted  a  double-double with  12 points  and  11 rebounds  in
 defeat.
 
 Kentucky controlled the early action, opening the contest with a 21-8 run that
 included a pair of 3-pointers from O'Neill.
 
 Georgia  quickly  responded, however, as Miller  led the way with eight points
 during  a 15-6 push to get back within 27-23, but they would get no closer and
 the  Wildcats later scored  the final five points of the first half to carry a
 40-30 advantage into the break.
 
 Kentucky  stretched its  lead up  to 45-32  in the  second half  before Miller
 capped  a  19-4 run with a  layup to hand the  Lady Bulldogs a 51-49 edge with
 about 12 minutes to play.
 
 The  Wildcats answered with  an 18-8 spurt to regain a 67-59 lead, but Georgia
 again  battled back  with a  14-2  trek to  go on  top,  73-69, on  a pair  of
 Armstrong free throws with 2:18 to play.
 
 After  a Walker  tip-in and a James free  throw made it a 74-71 game with 1:12
 remaining,  Kentucky  failed to  get any  closer as  the Wildcats missed their
 final  three shots  from the floor, including a potential game-tying 3-pointer
 by DeNesha Stallworth, before Miller made the back end of a set of free throws
 in the final second to finalize the scoring.
 
 Walker also failed to connect on a couple of foul shots in the stretch.
