Tech Women Lose To Kentucky

Hoping to pull off a little holiday-season surprise, the Tennessee Tech women's basketball team proved to be its own worst enemy Tuesday night in Memorial Coliseum. Tech lost 29 turnovers and No. 9 Kentucky turned those miscues into 29 points, more than enough to account for a 24-point Wildcat victory, 77-53. The Golden Eagles were within six points just seconds before halftime after rallying with a 12-0 run late in the period. In the second half, the Golden Eagles overcame some early mistakes to power back to within nine, 46-37, before a flurry of turnovers turned the tight game into a double-figure UK lead. The Golden Eagles (5-2 overall) stay on the road this weekend with a game at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, Saturday afternoon.
