If you were wondering why the beginning of the men’s basketball game between the Kentucky Wildcats and Baylor Bears was postponed for one-hour, it was because the women’s game between the two schools went four overtimes. The Kentucky Wildcats beat the Baylor Lady Bears 133-130 in a wild game at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
As snow fell outside, the game between the Wildcats and Lady Bears burned into the night. Leading the way for the Wildcats was guard Jennifer O’Neill, who scored 43 points and dished out 6 dimes. Guard Janee Thompson scored 20 points with 6 turnovers. Forward DeNesha Stallworth had 16 points, grabbed 9 boards, and stole the ball 4 times. Center Samarie Walker was two points shy of a double-double with 8 points and 10 rebounds. Guards Kastine Evans and Bria Goss scored 14 and 13 points, respectively,
Guard Odyssey Sims of the Lady Bears led all scorers with 47 points along with 6 assists and 4 rebounds before she fouled out in the first overtime. Guard Makenzie Robertson netted 23 points, grabbed 8 boards, and dropped 6 dimes. Forward Nina Davis secured a double-double with 20 points and 11 rebounds. Guard Niya Johnson had a game-high 11 assists, and center Khadijah Cave tied Davis for 11 bounds.
Remarkably, Alexis Prince of Baylor had a chance to tie the game in the final seconds, but her three-ball rimmed out. The players did not want the night to end in Arlington, what a game!
