No. 8 Kentucky women beat No. 10 Texas A&M 70-66

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - DeNesha Stallworth had 12 points and 12 rebounds as No. 8 Kentucky held off 10th-ranked Texas A&M 70-66 on Monday night.

Courtney Walker scored four quick points, the last two when she drove hard to the basket for a layup, to trim Texas A&M's deficit to 66-64 with about a minute remaining.

Kentucky (23-3, 11-2 SEC) missed a 3-pointer as the shot clock expired, but it bounced off the rim and Stallworth batted the rebound to Bria Goss for an easy layup that made it 68-64.

Walker was fouled on a made jump shot with 4 seconds left and purposely missed the ensuing free throw. But Goss grabbed the rebound and hit two free throws to seal it.

Walker's 20 points led Texas A&M (20-6, 10-2), which lost for the first time since Jan. 10 at Kentucky.
