UK Hoops picked to win the SEC

Yesterday it was the men’s team getting all the SEC love from the media. Today, the people who do the voting picked the UK women’s basketball team to finish No. 1 in the conference. UK Hoops received 20 of the 26 first place votes from the media panel.

A’dia Mathies was named First Team All-SEC and tabbed preseason Player of the Year. Samarie Walker received second team honors.

Coach Mitchell is getting it done.

    Glad to see the women succeed, after years of medocricy. Maybe calipari should be the head football coach, and matt mitchell could be the offensive coordinator

    I would love to see both teams win the SEC and receive individual accolades.

    4) Sir, you have committed a spelling error in your comment. MEDOCRICY does not exist; therefore, it has been determined that you meant to type MEDIOCRITY.

    Proud of the KY women and look forward to seeing some games in Memorial this season. On another note, “UK Hoops” is a stupid, asexual name. I guess UK wanted to be ‘progressive’ and retire the ‘Ladykats’ title for the women’s team. Funny how that hasn’t been an issue for the ‘Lady Huskies’ or the ‘Lady Vols.’

    call me when mitchell actually wins something besides a “clown off” before the men’s BB madness…$1MM per year for a coach who has not been to a FF, has ever won a tournament and has only won one SEC regular season title, and whose program HEMORRAGES money is ridiculous.

    11, go eat an ass. Mitchell has turned this team into a contender having been to the elite 8 twice being beaten by elite schools. On top of that, he won the sec last year and has been right there in the sec championship. He finally has the size to compete with elite teams and we will see that. The women never had a mcds AA until Jennifer oneil and now look how many is on there. Also, they conistantly have one of the best defensives in the country. Why don’t you go back to the 1950 or better yet, get out of your moms basement and find a girlfriend.

    #9 Coach Demoss was the one who came up with the “hoops” moniker, so shut your title 9 holding mouth.
    #11 you are a moron. You do know that there is a team named Tennesse in our conference don’t you? MM has done a remarkable job at UK. He has earned every penny of his contract. In fact if your numbers are right, he’s making less then Joker. That needs to be fixed. Pronto.

    13-I never said the stupid ‘hoops’ name was Mitchell’s fault, I just said it was stupid. There certainly is nothing in my post dealing with title IX. Take a pamprin, sugar.

    John wall is back? Seriousely, MM has done a very good job with the ladycats and made them contenders. Now, if UK can hold on to him, like I hope UL keeps Jeff Walz, we have the makings of a very fierce rivaly.

    ROI Bitches…for you intellectual retards who can’t figure it out it stands for RETURN ON INVESTMENT…and Mitchell does not provide it…good coach, maybe, give him a couple years and we’ll see…but his salary for a program that LOSES $3 million per year and has won NOTHING is beyond ridiculous…
