Mathies leads Kentucky women to rout of Auburn

Posted: Updated:

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A'dia Mathies scored a season-best 24 points to help No. 5 Kentucky rout Auburn 97-53 on Sunday.

 

The Wildcats (18-1, 6-0 SEC), who have now won 17 games in a row and are tied with No. 4 Duke for the longest win streak in the country, put the game away in the first half, running out to an 11-point early. Auburn closed its deficit to eight with 11:04 until halftime. But over the next 7 1/2 minutes, Kentucky went on a 24-2 run, during which six different Wildcats scored.

 

Kentucky led 51-21 at the break. The Tigers (13-6, 2-4) scored consecutive field goals only once in the first half; it was those two field goals that snapped the Wildcats' 24-2 stretch that put them on top 46-15.

 

Auburn, which entered Sunday's game averaging 15.8 turnovers per game and a plus-6.4 turnover margin, had a season-high 30 turnovers (16 at halftime) against the Wildcats' full-court press.
