Cats ride Mathies' 34 over Dayton
The two-time SEC Player of the Year had been held without a field goal and scored only five points in Kentucky's opening-round win over Navy, but came out blazing against the Flyers. The senior guard was 13-of-17 from the field and hit six 3-pointers en route to the highest-scoring performance by a UK player in the NCAA Tournament.
Second-seeded Kentucky (29-5) also got 14 points from junior center DeNesha Stallworth and 11 points apiece from sophomore guards Jennifer O'Neill and Bria Goss. The Wildcats, who established a new program record for wins in a season, will face Delaware in the Sweet 16 on Saturday.
Dayton, the No. 7 seed in the Bridgeport Regional, finished the season at 28-3.
Defense was a big key for Kentucky, which turned 23 Dayton turnovers into 31 points.
Mathies scored 10 points during a 16-3 run by UK early in the second half that broke open a close game. She hit two of her 3-pointers during the spurt to give the Cats a 62-47 lead.
