            === No. 10 Kentucky rallies for OT win over Arkansas ===
 
 Fayetteville,  AR  (Sports Network) -  Bria Goss scored all  but one of her 17
 points  during the second half and overtime, sparking a Kentucky comeback that
 gave  the No. 10  Wildcats a hard-fought 80-74 win over Arkansas in SEC action
 from Walton Arena.
 
 Six  of  Goss' total came during  the extra session, with three other Wildcats
 ending  in double  figures  as  Kentucky (20-3,  8-2  SEC)  bounced back  from
 Sunday's 75-71 home loss to No. 9 Georgia.
 
 Samarie  Walker contributed  16 points to the victory, while A'dia Mathies had
 15 along with nine rebounds and DeNesha Stallworth netted 12 points.
 
 Arkansas  (15-8, 3-7) was dealt a second straight defeat despite 25 points off
 the  bench from  Sarah  Watkins  and an  18-point,  eight-rebound effort  from
 Quistelle Williams. Dominique Wilson added 17 points in a losing cause.
 
 Kentucky  trailed  33-28 at  the half  and faced  an eight-point deficit after
 Watkins  buried a  3-pointer with 8:11 left in regulation for a 56-48 Arkansas
 lead.  The Wildcats  then went on a  14-5 run, capped by a Mathies jumper that
 put UK up 62-61 with 1:11 to go in the second half.
 
 A  three-point  play from Williams  staked the  Razorbacks to a two-point edge
 with  under a  minute left, but Mathies  scored with 26 seconds to go to force
 overtime.
 
 The  Wildcats then  assumed control  during  additional time,  opening the  OT
 period  with  a 9-2 run to  take a 73-66  lead. Arkansas never got closer than
 four points down the rest of the way.
