NEW YORK (AP) - A'dia Mathies rebounded from the worst game of her career to match her career high with 34 points and lead second-seeded Kentucky to an 84-70 win over seventh-seeded Dayton on Tuesday night in the second round of the NCAA women's tournament.
 
      The Wildcats (29-5) will face Delaware in the semifinals of the Bridgeport Regional on Saturday.
 
      Clinging to a 46-44 advantage early in the second half, Mathies scored 10 points during a 16-3 run to take control of the game.
 
      The two-time SEC player of the year hit two 3-pointers, including one to cap the burst and make it 62-47. She didn't hit a field goal in the first round win over Navy. She made 13 of 17 against Dayton.
 
      Andrea Hoover scored 22 points to lead the Flyers (28-3), got no closer than eight the rest of the way.
