Lady Vols lead SEC after Texas A&M loss

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (WATE/AP) - The Tennessee Lady Volunteers took sole possession of first place in the SEC on Monday night when No. 8 Kentucky defeated 10th-ranked Texas A&M.

DeNesha Stallworth had 12 points and 12 rebounds for the Wildcats.

Kentucky (23-3, 11-2 SEC) missed a 3-pointer as the shot clock expired, but it bounced off the rim and Stallworth batted the rebound to Bria Goss for an easy layup that made it 68-64.

Walker's 20 points led Texas A&M (20-6, 10-2), which lost for the first time since Jan. 10 at Kentucky.

The Lady Vols beat Vanderbilt on Sunday to improve their SEC record to 10-1.

The race for the regular season SEC title, and the top-seed in the conference tournament will likely go down to the final week of play.

Tennessee faces Texas A&M on Feb. 28 in Knoxville. The Lady Vols travel to Kentucky on March 3.

Holly Warlick's team hosts Auburn on Thursday.

The Lady Vols moved up to No. 11 in the Associated Press college basketball poll.
