Former Kentucky guard and one of the all-time greats to wear a Wildcats uniform, Maci Morris, has been waived by the Washington Mystics of the WNBA.

Morris originally agreed to a training camp deal with the Mystics back in April. She appeared in only one game – an exhibition on Friday against the Minnesota Lynx – playing just under four minutes.
Morris was not selected in the WNBA Draft (although ESPN thought she was) that took place in early April but quickly earned an invite from the Mystics.
The WNBA season does not officially tip off until May 24th, so Morris has plenty of time to find a new home before then and be ready for the starts of the league’s 22nd season.
During her four years at Kentucky, Morris was an undoubtedly lethal shooter. She finished her career in Lexington sixth all-time in scoring with 1,692 points and second all-time in made threes with 252. Alongside star freshman Rhyne Howard and fellow senior guard Taylor Murray, Morris helped lead the Wildcats to a 25-8 overall record and a second-round appearance in the NCAA Tournament.
Good luck to Morris going forward and we hope to see her back on a WNBA team soon!
