Kentucky Women Sink Navy 61-41 In NCAA Tourney

NEW YORK (AP) — DaNesha Stallworth scored 18 points and Jennifer O’Neill added nine of her 12 points in the second half to lead second-seed Kentucky to a 61-41 win over 15th-seeded Navy on Sunday in the opening round of the NCAA women’s tournament.

The Wildcats (28-5) trailed by one at the half before O’Neill, who grew up in New York, took over. She hit a quick 3-pointer to start a 12-2 run. The sophomore guard had seven points, a steal and an assist during the burst.

Kentucky had been off for 14 days since losing in the SEC tournament title game and looked rusty early on. Two-time SEC player of the year A’dia Mathies didn’t have a field goal for the first time in her career.

Alix Membreno and Jade Geif scored nine each to lead Navy (21-12), which was trying to become the first 15 seed to win a game in NCAA tournament history.
