Kristy Wallace scored 15 of her 20 points in the first half and No. 9 Baylor held No. 20 Kentucky without a field goal in the third quarter on way to a 90-63 victory Thursday night in the Big 12/SEC Challenge.
The Lady Bears outscored the Wildcats 23-6 in that decisive quarter, with Kentucky (6-1) missing all 13 of its shots from the floor while losing for the first time.
Wallace led six players in double figures for Lady Bears (6-1), who shot 54 percent (35 for 65) from the floor and 53 percent (9 for 17) on 3-pointers. The senior guard had plenty of help in the backcourt, with Alexis Morris scoring 15 points and Juicy Landry 14.
Maci Morris had a game-high 22 points for Kentucky, which had four players in double figures and made 11-of-19 3-pointers (58 percent). But the Wildcats shot only 32 percent overall after shooting only 8 for 40 inside the arc.
Baylor was up only 25-21 in the second quarter when Kentucky was called for a flagrant foul. Wallace made the two free throws, Morris added layup to make it a four-point trip and start a 12-2 run.
Kentucky was back within seven before Landrum made two 3s and Wallace added one from long range in a 67-second span just before halftime for a 50-34 lead.
Jaida Roper added 12 points for Kentucky, while Taylor Murray and Makenzie Cann had 10 each.
