UK Hoops outlasts Syracuse, advances to Sweet 16

03/24/2014 07:55 PM

The six-seeded Orange put up a fight, but Syracuse fell short in their upset bid against the UK Hoops team.

The Cats took and early 7-6 lead in this game and would never trail for the remainder of the contest. The Orange didn’t make it easy, cutting the deficit to one possession on a handful of occasions, but the three-seed prevailed, 64-59.

Leading the Cats was Bria Goss, who scored 17 points and collected 6 rebounds. DeNesha Stallworth chipped in 13, and Kastine Evans was also in double figures with 11 points.

UK Hoops now moves on to the Sweet 16, where they’ll likely face Baylor. The game would be a rematch of the quadruple overtime affair in which the Cats came out with a 133-130 win.
