Walker leads 14-seed Kentucky to 71-58 upset over Alabama
Jada Walker scored a career-high 24 points and 14th-seeded Kentucky won its second straight game in the Southeastern Conference Tournament,
roaring back from a 10-point third-quarter deficit to knock off sixth-seeded Alabama 71-58, earning a berth in Friday’s quarterfinals against Tennessee.
The Wildcats, who knocked off 11th-seeded Florida on Wednesday, have won six straight SEC tournament games and coach Kyra Elzy is 7-1 in three appearances. Kentucky became the second-lowest seed (seventh) to win the tournament a year ago.
