UK Hoops rolls over Boston, 92-58

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Fresh off an announced recruiting class placing Kentucky in the top 5 in the nation, the Wildcats rolled over the Boston Terriers 92-58. Victoria Dunlap led the Cats with her career 14th double-double, scoring 24 points and grabbing 12 rebounds in the win.

Along with Dunlap, three other Wildcats scored in double digits. Junior Carly Morrow (Chattanooga, Tenn.) netted 17 points while setting a new career mark with five makes from beyond the three-point arc. She also tied her career high with four steals and six made field goals. Junior Amber Smith (Winter Haven, Fla.) posted 16 points and was a perfect 6-of-6 from the free-throw line. Freshman A'dia Mathies (Louisville, Ky.) scored 13 points on 6-of-7 shooting from the charity stripe and also nabbed seven rebounds in her first career start.

"We are thrilled to start the season off with a win and we need to get a bunch of them this year so we are glad to get the first one," UK Coach Matthew Mitchell said. "I thought that our team, while not playing anything close to a perfect game, had a really good effort today. It is a good way to start and we have a long way to go to become a finished project, obviously, but I am happy with this win today."

Also making her debut was sophomore transfer Rebecca Gray (Georgetown, Ky.), sophomore transfer Keyla Snowden (Lexington, Ky.) and freshman Brittany Henderson (Altadena, Calif.). Gray, a transfer from North Carolina, came off the bench to chart eight points, five rebounds and a team-high three assists. She also added a pair of steals in her first UK game. Sophomore Keyla Snowden (Lexington, Ky.), a transfer from Akron, scored six points and grabbed two rebounds while freshman Brittany Henderson (Altadena, Calif.) scored her first bucket as a Wildcat in the second half. She also snared six rebounds and posted a block in just 16 minutes of action. Senior Amani Franklin (Stone Mountain, Ga.) added six points in the win and extended her consecutive free-throw streak to 20. That streak currently ranks 10th all-time at UK.

After a quick turnaround, the Wildcats return to Memorial Coliseum Sunday, Nov. 15, at 1 p.m. EST against Butler. The game will be broadcast live on the Big Blue Sports Network (radio and TV) and Fox Sports South.
