UK women’s basketball starts practice


The UK women’s basketball team started practice today, giving us another sign that the fun sports are on the way and we’ll get through this summer soon enough.

The Cats finished 15-17 last season but 2018-2019 looks much brighter. UK will return 11 players on last season’s team, including Ogechi Anyagaligbo who was injured last season. Anyagaligbo was named Rookie of the Year in the American East Conference after averaging 10.1 points and nine rebounds per game for Stony Brook during the 2015-2016 season.

Kentucky will return 80 percent of its scoring, 74 percent of its rebounding and 80 percent of its assists. Sounds good, but that’s not all.

UK adds Rhyne Howard and Blair Green. The two freshman were high school stars with Howard being named Miss Basketball of Tennessee. Green was named First Team All-State in Kentucky. Howard leaves for USA Basketball this weekend.

But hold the phone. We’re not done yet.

The Cats will also get a preseason exhibition trip to Italy. John Calipari and his squad heads to the Bahamas, Matthew Mitchell’s team will go to Rome, Florence and Venice. We all know how beneficial those summer trips can be so it’s a nice added bonus for both teams.

UK will practice again Saturday and Sunday and the season opener on Nov. 7th will be here before we know it.
