    Huge first half run helps No. 19 Kentucky stifle Mississippi State

    Associated Press

    LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Victoria Dunlap scored 22 points and No. 19 Kentucky held off a late rally to beat Mississippi State 72-60 on Sunday.

    The Wildcats (13-4, 2-2) started slowly but scored 22 straight points in the first half during a nine-minute stretch. They forced eight turnovers and didn't give the Lady Bulldogs any second shots over that span.

    Dunlap, who also had 10 rebounds for her fourth double-double of the season, moved into fifth place on Kentucky's all-time scoring list. She now has 1,567 career points for the Wildcats.

    Kentucky led 42-21 at halftime and led by as many as 24 in the second half, but the Lady Bulldogs (8-8, 0-4) made a push late. Diamber Johnson scored 17 of her 20 points in the second but her team never got closer than 11.

    Dunlap was one of four Wildcats to score in double figures Sunday.
