LEXINGTON, Ky. - Bria Goss scored 11 points, including two clutch free throws with 10.8 seconds remaining, to lift No. 13 Kentucky to a 63-56 win over 14th-ranked LSU Sunday at Memorial Coliseum.

The Wildcats (17-5, 5-4 Southeastern Conference) rebounded from Thursday's 58-56 setback at Georgia and ended the Lady Tigers' three-game winning streak. The Wildcats had lost two of their previous three games.

Kentucky led 48-33 with 11:22 remaining but LSU fought back down the stretch, narrowing the deficit to 60-56 with 17 seconds remaining. The Wildcats made 3 of 4 free throws in the closing seconds to seal the win.

A steal by Goss on an inbounds play resulted in her game-clinching free throws. Kentucky made eight 3-pointers, including two by Jennifer O'Neill.

O'Neill followed Goss with 10 points, scoring eight in the first half.

Raigyne Moncrief scored 14 points in the second half and led LSU (17-5, 6-3) with 19 points. Theresa Plaisance added 13 for the Lady Tigers, who committed 18 turnovers.
