Duke had an 8 point lead at one time, but a bunch of turnovers, fouls, lack of offense, and lack of defense now has Kentucky up by 1 at 31-30

i don't know what Duke is doing as i can't see the game but Williams should get a touch every single time down the court.

anyway 34-31 duke is up at the half...

Duke leads 34-31 at the half.

Duke had 16 turnovers mostly caused by Kentucky's full court press. However as I said in another thread for most of the 1st half if Duke beat the press, then Ky's defense was not that tough. It did get better in the last 3 minutes.

Williams is 4-4 and has 3 rebounds. I agree she should be getting a touch every Duke possession. I think Duke has a very good shot at a win if she takes 10 shots or more in the second half (assuming they are shots in the paint).

Kentucky's on ball pressure does not allow Liz that many touches, good idea though. Game on ESPN3

Ky leads Duke 50-46 with 12 minutes left in the game. Duke looks tired and I wouldn't be surprised if KY goes on a run.

Kentucky had a special where you could get a ticket for $1.00 for tonight's game. Game is being played at Rupp Arena and attendance is 14,508. That is a record for a women's game at KY.

59-52 KY leads with 6 minutes left in the game.

Bria Goss freshmen guard out of Indianapolis is having a great game for KY.

Williams is taking more shots, but Duke's 1-5 3 point shooting is sinking them.

We ( Louisville) got spanked by Ky this past weekend. We played awful, the kids just did not show up for the game. That being said , KY played very good ball. Their defense is relentless. A'Dia Mathies is scary good. They are only going to get better, with Walker joining the lineup as soon as next week.
Azia Bishop( freshman) is having a break out game.

I know we deserved the heat we got about our loss to KY, but, this KY team is no joke. I am anxious to see the game against Notee Dame, but...we may be looking at a FF team here.

Kentucky wins game 72-65 pulling away in the last 5 minutes

Kentucky played pressure defense for the complete game causing 24 Duke turn overs.
Next week Kentucky travels to ND and with KY's pressure defense it should be an interesting game. If anything it will help prepare ND for UConn's defense.

Ky definitely has a chance to knock off Tenn.

Their ball handling is very suspect.

I watched most of this game, which I found pretty entertaining. That said, Duke has big, big problems with any team that comes at them with energy. Williams is going to be special, but honestly, I like UConn's chances in this one a lot. Kentucky's energy is impressive, and they'll get better with Walker aboard. But while their press rattled Duke, I didn't think it was that big a deal. I liked their center, who came up big defensively, and they have a couple of shooters who can shoot. They are the kind of team that can sneak up on people. A game against TN would be very interesting.

Wow, impressive start to the season for KY, esp given that O'Neill is out and Walker can't play for 2 more weeks.

KY is going to be very dangerous.
