LEXINGTON, Ky. - The Ole Miss women's basketball team fell at No. 6 Kentucky Thursday night, 82-41. 

With the loss, Ole Miss fell to 12-11 (2-9 SEC) while No. 6 Kentucky improved to 21-2 (10-0 SEC). 

Courtney Marbra led Ole Miss with seven points while four players each recorded six for the Rebels.  Danielle McCray and Monique Jackson each grabbed a team-high six rebounds.

Kentucky's defense forced Ole Miss to commit a season-high 36 turnovers, turning into 39 points for the Wildcats.  The game also marked the first time since March 7, 2008 that an opponent held Ole Miss without a player in double figures.  

The Wildcats led 10-4 at the first media timeout but out of the timeout, the Rebels used a 10-2 run sparked from a basket from Tia Faleru to go ahead 14-12 with 13:20 to play in the first half.

After a layup from Monique Jackson to tie the game at 16-16, the Kentucky went on a 15-2 run to go ahead, 31-18, with 4:53 remaining.   

At the half, Kentucky led, 37-23.  Valencia McFarland and Jackson led Ole Miss at the half with four points each while Danielle McCray had a team-best five boards.  The Rebels shot 41.7 percent (10-24) from the floor while the Wildcats shot 30.0 percent (12-40) but Kentucky went 11-15 from the free throw line while Ole Miss shot 2-5.

Coming out of the half, Ole Miss cut the lead to 10, 37-27, on a pair of free throws from Faleru with 19:27 to play but Kentucky went on a 15-3 run to push ahead 55-32 with 13:50 remaining in the game. 

Ole Miss will play at Florida on Sunday at 1 p.m. CT.
