KINGSTON, R.I. — Keyla Snowden made five 3-pointers, hitting a pair of them to turn back Gonzaga's last charge as Kentucky beat the Zags 79-62 on Sunday to advance to the East Regional finals of the NCAA women's tournament.
Snowden had 17 points, going 5 of 9 from 3-point range, and Samarie Walker scored 16 with 12 rebounds for No. 2 seed Kentucky, which will play top-seeded Connecticut on Tuesday for a spot in the Final Four in Denver. UConn beat Penn State 77-59 earlier in the day.
It's the second trip to the regional finals for Kentucky (28-6) in three years.
Kayla Standish scored 25 for No. 11 seed Gonzaga (28-6), which reached the round of 16 for the third consecutive year.
