Kentucky uses second-half run to take down Detroit

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Sarah Elliott scored 22 points and Jennifer Humphrey had 12 points and 15 rebounds to help Kentucky (No. 24 AP) beat Detroit 79-44 on Wednesday night.

Kentucky (4-2), which never led in the first half, used a 35-6 run to open the second half, scoring the first 15 points.

Elliot scored six of the Wildcats' first eight points of the half. She also blocked a shot, moving her into a tie for third place on Kentucky's career list.

Both teams had trouble scoring early, with Detroit (1-4) missed 15 of its first 19 shots and Kentucky connecting on only four of 16.

Detroit's Joyce Massey, a transfer from Massachusetts, scored 18 first-half points and finished with 29.

Kentucky, which outscored Detroit 54-16 in the second half, has won all eight meetings between the two schools.

The win was coach Mickie DeMoss' 100th at Kentucky.
