BOX SCORE: Janee Thompson gunned in 21 points as 11th-Ranked Wildcats win 84-65 at Northern Kentucky
HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. -- For the sixth game running, senior Janee Thompson (pictured) scored in double-figures, as her 21 points were enough to power the No. 11 Kentucky women’s basketball team past host Northern Kentucky 84-65 on Wednesday night, Dec. 2, at BB&T Arena.
Thompson, who has now scored 20-plus points in two games this season, scored 10 points in the first half and 11 in the second, while also adding in three rebounds and seven assists.
