LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) Taylor Murray had 18 points and eight rebounds, Makayla Epps added 18 points and nine assists and the No. 20 Kentucky women held Morehead State without a field goal for more than 15 minutes in the Wildcats' 74-47 win Wednesday night.

Maci Morris scored 14 points and Evelyn Akhator had 11 points and nine rebounds.

Kentucky (4-1) led by three at the end of the first quarter, but used a 25-7 run to open a 45-24 lead with 3 minutes left in the third.

Morehead State (3-2) scored two points in the second quarter, setting the school record for fewest points in a quarter. Miranda Crockett hit a jumper with 7:30 left in the half and the Eagles went scoreless for the next 8 minutes, 56 seconds and didn't make another field goal until a jumper by Brianna McQueen with 2:26 left in the third quarter.
