COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Ieasia Walker had 16 points and eight rebounds as No. 18 South Carolina beat No. 5 Kentucky 55-50 on Thursday night, ended the Wildcats' nation's longest winning streak at 17 games.

Kentucky (18-2, 6-1 Southeastern Conference) led for most of the second half before the Gamecocks went on a 18-4 run to take a 52-44 lead with 3:34 left. South Carolina (17-3, 5-2) hit only three free throws the rest of the game, but the SEC's best defense was able to hang on.

Ashley Bruner ended Kentucky's last chance knocking away an inbound pass with 12.7 seconds left to give South Carolina's its first win over a top five team in 12 tries under fifth-year coach Dawn Staley.
