The 10th-ranked Kentucky women’s basketball team lost its second game in a row in a loss to No. 11 South Carolina in Columbia tonight. Matthew Mitchell called the road game his team’s “annual trip to the dentist office, its yearly root canal” during yesterday’s press conference and that’s exactly how it turned out. The Cats gave up an early lead with four minutes left in the first half and South Carolina never looked back, rolling on to win, 68-59.
UK falls to 13-3 on the season and 1-2 in conference play. The next game will be in Memorial Coliseum on Sunday against Missouri. Tip-off is set for 5:00 p.m. and you’re invited.
They’ll bounce back. Go Hoops.
