Epps, Jennings Lead Cats past Georgia


ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Makayla Epps scored 13 points, Alexis Jennings had with 12 points and a game-high 12 rebounds, and No. 10 Kentucky beat Georgia 64-53 on Sunday.

The Wildcats (13-1, 2-1 Southeastern Conference) were never really threatened despite shooting a season-low 37.3 percent from the field. Evelyn Akhator finished with 10 points and 10 rebounds, and Janee Thompson added 10 points for Kentucky.

Georgia (12-4, 0-3 SEC) has dropped three straight, all against Top 25 opponents.

The Lady Bulldogs had no one score in double figures. Shacobia Barbee and Halle Washington each finished with eight.

With 1:43 remaining, Caliya Robinson's lane jumper cut the lead to five, Georgia's lowest deficit since early in the second quarter, but Epps followed with a three-point play and the Wildcats hit their last nine free throws to finish off the Lady Bulldogs.
