NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A'dia Mathies scored on a three-point play with 38.8 seconds left, and No. 16 Kentucky edged LSU 60-58 Friday in the Southeastern Conference tournament quarterfinals.

The second-seeded Wildcats (23-7) will play Vanderbilt or Mississippi State on Saturday.

LSU (19-13) will have to wait and see if the Lady Tigers did enough to earn a postseason berth and the chance to notch a third 20-win season under coach Van Chancellor.

The Lady Tigers had their chances late. LaSondra Barrett bounced a 3-pointer off the front of the rim with 14 seconds left, and Katherine Graham's jumper in the final seconds was off.

Victoria Dunlap helped seal the victory with a free throw with 12.5 seconds left. She finished with a game-high 21 points.

Barrett scored 19 points for LSU. Adrienne Webb had 16.
