ARLINGTON, Texas — Jennifer O’Neill dreamed that No. 5 Kentucky’s game against No. 9 Baylor would come down to a buzzer-beater.
She just didn’t imagine it could be any one of five buzzers.
O’Neill scored a career-high 43 points, including the go-ahead basket in the fourth overtime, and Kentucky beat Baylor 133-130 on Friday night in the highest-scoring Division I women’s game in history.
“I don’t feel anything right now,” said O’Neill, who set a school scoring record. “I thought it was more overtimes to be honest.”………..
The previous high for a Division I women’s game was 252 points in SMU’s 127-125 win over TCU, also in four overtimes, on Jan. 25, 1997.
