UK Women's Basketball Defeats Georgia Southern in Home Opener

uk girl bb 300LEXINGTON, Ky. (11/13/13) – The No. 7 ranked UK Women's basketball squad stretched their winning streak to 3-0 Wednesday after destroying Georgia Southern during the Cats' home opener, 103-38.

Bernisha Pinkett led the Cats with 19 points. Kastine Evans followed with 15 points, and DeNesha Stallworth and Linnae Harper tied with 13 points each. Azia Bishop earned a double-double with 10 points and 12 rebounds.

The Cats started off the game strong with a 10-0 run, which led to a 49-13 halftime lead. That score tied a school record for scoring margin.

UK forced 35 turnovers and shot 51 percent, also shooting 56 percent from the free-throw line. Georgia Southern couldn't compete with field goals, only shooting 21 percent. But what Georgia Southern lacked in field goal shooting, they made up for in free-throws, scoring 70 percent from the charity stripe.
