Kentucky overcomes injury to top scorer in win vs. Tennessee-Martin

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Keyla Snowden was sharp from the arc with 17 points and No. 11 Kentucky overcame an injury to its top scorer Thursday night in a 68-47 win over Tennessee-Martin 68-47.

Kentucky star Victoria Dunlap left with 9:51 remaining in the game after colliding with teammate Crystal Riley while chasing a rebound. Coach Matthew Mitchell did not have an immediate update but said he was optimistic because Snowden was walking around after the game. Dunlap had seven points and seven rebounds when she exited.

Snowden, the current Southeastern Conference Player of the Week, shot 5-for-8 on 3-pointers. She's scored at least 15 points in four straight games, making at least four 3s each time.

Freshman Samantha Drake posted her first career double-double with 14 points and 13 rebounds for the Wildcats (11-1).

Freshman Jasmine Newsome scored 16 for the Skyhawks (7-7).
