Georgia's Hempe, Miller lead upset of No. 13 Kentucky

Associated Press

ATHENS, Ga. - Merritt Hempe had 15 points and 11 rebounds, Khaalidah Miller added 11 points and Georgia held off No. 13 Kentucky 58-56 on Thursday night.

Kentucky (16-5, 4-4 Southeastern Conference) began the game with the nation's fifth-highest scoring average, but the Wildcats placed just one player - Samarie Walker with 10 points - in double figures.

Krista Donald finished with 10 points and Shacobia Barbee had nine points and 10 rebounds for Georgia (15-6, 3-5 SEC).

With 22 seconds remaining, Marjorie Butler hit one free throw to give the Lady Bulldogs a 58-56 lead, but missed the second, and DeNisha Stallworth grabbed the rebound for Kentucky.

But Krista Donald stole the ball from Jennifer O'Neill as the Wildcats point guard was driving the baseline with 10 seconds left.

After Georgia's Tiara Griffin missed a free throw, O'Neill missed a 3-point attempt at the buzzer.

Krista Donald, whose layup ended a 13-2 run that put the Lady Bulldogs up 42-37, hit an 18-footer that made it 48-42 with 8:23 remaining.

The Wildcats' last seven SEC games have been decided by 11 points or less. They are 3-4 in that stretch.
