Dunlap, Roddy power Cats

OXFORD, Ohio — The UK women's basketball team used a dominant post presence to defeat Miami (Ohio) 80-55 Saturday for its fifth consecutive win.

The Cats outscored the RedHawks 46-18 in the paint, and forwards Victoria Dunlap and Eleia Roddy both notched double-doubles.

The Wildcats (10-5) shot 53.3 percent (32-of-60) from the floor in the game, their second-highest shooting efficiency of the season, and outrebounded Miami 46-28.

Dunlap notched her seventh career double-double and her third this season with a game-high 20 points and a career-high 15 rebounds.

"Vic is just so versatile for us both offensively and defensively," UK Coach Matthew Mitchell said. "She is just a really valuable player for our team and she came to play today."

Roddy recorded her seventh consecutive double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds. She is just the second player in school history to record seven consecutive double-doubles. Former Wildcat All-American Valerie Still recorded seven or more consecutive double-doubles on four different occasions during her career, including a school-record 11 straight double-doubles in the 1982-83 season.

Carly Morrow and Amani Franklin each scored 11 points and junior forward Brittany Edelen added 10 points.
