Matthew Mitchell and the Cats pick up in-state commit, Cassidy Rowe

While Coach Matthew Mitchell and the rest of the women’s basketball team are competing in Italy, they’ve picked up a commit from right here in the Bluegrass. Cassidy Rowe, a native of Pike County, Kentucky, has just committed to the Cats.

Rowe will be a freshman at Shelby Valley High School in the fall. Even though she’ll be new to school, she won’t be new to the basketball team – she’s already played a key role on the roster. Last year, Rowe averaged 9.9 points and 3.3 rebounds as the starting point guard… as an eighth grader. She’s considered a favorite for Miss Kentucky Basketball 2022.

Coach Mitchell extended a scholarship offer to Rowe less than a month ago. Just days earlier, she suffered a torn ACL during an AAU game in Chicago.

Rowe tweeted about her offer on July 13, saying “I am beyond excited to announce that I just received a scholarship offer from the University of Kentucky!! I want to thank the UK coaching staff for believing in me even after my injury.”

She also had offers from Northern Kentucky University, Morehead State, Murray State and the University of Denver.

Welcome to the BBN, Cassidy!

    Does anyone have any information why these UK girls transfer / quit the team recently?

    She’s gonna be a freshman……in high school……coming of ACL repair. My how UK recruiting has changed. By the time she’s eligible for college MM won’t be here

      Same thought……torn ACL at such a young age. Hope she heals well and returns much stronger. If she bleeds blue, she bleeds blue.

    Need more in state talent! Hope she has a great career and recovers well from her injury. That’s tough in any sport

    I hate to be negative, but I agree with most of you guys. Plus, I live in the 15th Region and outside of a couple teams the rest of the competition is horrible. I understand those stats are from her 8th-grade year and that’s not very impressive. I can name a handful girl’s that played varsity while being in 8th grade, back in the mid 90’s and had tougher competition, seems like most of them ended up at UPike, Alice Lloyd College or some other small NAIA, school around the state.
