ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Jennifer O'Neill scored a career-high 43 points, including the go-ahead basket in the fourth overtime, and No. 5 Kentucky beat No. 9 Baylor 133-130 on Friday night in the highest-scoring Division I women's game in history.
 
      The Wildcats (9-0) beat a top 10 team for the second time in five days in front of a crowd heavy with Kentucky blue at the 80,000-seat home of the Dallas Cowboys and site of the men's Final Four this season.
 
      The Bears (7-1) played the last three overtimes without star guard Odyssey Sims, who had a career-high 47 points when she fouled out with 1:23 left in the first overtime.
 
      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.
