Kentucky's A'dia Mathies has a dominant 34-point performance against Dayton in 2013 NCAA Tournament

Greg Alan Edwards of SB Nation's Kentucky site A Sea of Blue summarized the high points of Wildcats' guard A'dia Mathies' 34-point performance against the Dayton Flyers in the second round of the 2013 NCAA Tournament, giving the senior the game ball.

Mathies led the way as she hit 3's as well as shots inside the arc. She was getting tip-ins, off ball screens to get open looks, and using her teammates as picks everywhere...At one point, Kentucky allowed UD to take FT shots on three consecutive possessions and they hit 5 of 6 to cut the lead down to 2. Then Mathies decided she had seen enough. Soon, her 15 points became 20, then 25, and by the time she had hit 30, the Kentucky lead was back to 14 and Dayton was gassed. When all was said and done, Mathies had a total of 34 points, hit 6-7 from behind the arc, and was 13-17 from the floor.

Although one game should change our evaluation of a draft prospect, it's the type of performance that those of us paying attention to the 2013 WNBA Draft have probably been hoping to see more of throughout the season.
