LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Daisha Simmons scored 17 of her 22 points in the second half, including a layup with 2.3 seconds remaining that lifted Alabama to a 57-55 win over No. 9 Kentucky on Thursday night.
 
      Kentucky (15-4, 3-3 Southeastern Conference), tied the score at 55-all on two free throws by Jennifer O'Neill with 14.9 seconds to go. However, the Crimson Tide (9-10, 2-4) had plenty of time to set up for the last shot by Simmons.
 
      A desperation attempt by Kastine Evans bounced off the back of the rim as time expired, giving Alabama its first win in Lexington since 2002.
 
      Brianna Hutchen added 10 points for the Tide.
 
      Samarie Walker scored 13 of her 18 points in the second half for Kentucky before she fouled out with 1:46 left. Bria Gross added 14 points.
