Ole Miss upsets #9 UK women 73-65

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Shequila Joseph scored 21 points, Shandricka Sessom and A'Queen Hayes added 14 each and Mississippi upset No. 9 Kentucky 73-65 on Thursday night.
    
Ole Miss (10-9, 2-4 Southeastern Conference) snapped a four-game losing streak.
    
Joseph came into the game averaging just 5.7 points per game, but was hot from the opening tip. She was 8 of 12 from the field and 5 of 7 from 3-point range.
    
Kentucky (14-3, 3-3) trailed 59-47 early in the fourth quarter, but cut the advantage to 61-57 with 3:46 remaining. Ole Miss' Sessom responded by hitting a layup while being fouled and then made the free throw to give the Rebels a 64-57 advantage that proved too much for the Wildcats to overcome.
    
Kentucky has lost two of its last three. Makayla Epps led the Wildcats with 22 points.
