FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Alexis Tolefree scored 30 points on 5-of-10 shooting from 3-point range and No. 25-ranked Arkansas beat 15th-ranked Kentucky 103-85. It was the third time this season Arkansas reached the century mark. The Razorbacks are 1-3 this season against teams in the AP Top 25. Chelsea Dungee, who'd been averaging just a little more than 10 points a contest over her last six games, scored 24 on 8-of-12 shooting and made all four of her 3s. Taylah Thomas scored 13. Chasity Patterson led Kentucky with 32 points and Rhyne Howard 20.

STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) — Myah Taylor scored 16 points in the final 12 minutes to help No. 8 Mississippi State rally for a 69-57 victory over No. 16 Texas A&M. The Aggies kept their lead around double digits for the better part of 10 minutes before Taylor came alive. She had a steal and then scored eight straight points for the Bulldogs. Texas A&M went from scoring 26 points in the second quarter to scoring 20 points the entire second half. Kayla Wells and N’dea Jones led the Aggies with 16 points each. Rickea Jackson had 21 points to lead Mississippi State.

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — No. 1 South Carolina and coach Dawn Staley hope this is finally the year they get past No. 4 UConn. The two women's basketball powers meet Monday night in a showdown that's been lopsided in the Huskies' favor since Staley took over the Gamecocks 12 years ago. UConn has won the past seven in the series by an average margin of 21 points. The Huskies also ended South Carolina's run at No. 1 in 2015 with an 87-62 victory that Staley said showed her how far her team had to go to compete with the game's best.
