LEXINGTON, Ky. (January 10, 2013) -- A'dia Mathies scored 23 points and No. 6 Kentucky overcame a sluggish first half to rally past No. 20 Texas A&M 65-62 Thursday night.
Jennifer O'Neill added 15 points as the Wildcats (15-1, 3-0 SEC) extended school-record winning streaks of 14 games overall and 31 in a row at home.
Texas A&M shot 59 percent (17 of 29) in the first half behind a slew of layups from Kelsey Bone and Kristi Bellock for a 37-31 halftime lead. But Kentucky's improved defense wore down the Aggies and limited them to just 32 percent shooting (10 of 31) after that.
Bone's 27 points led Texas A&M (12-5, 2-1).
