The first women’s basketball ESPN coaches’ poll was released today and UK Hoops came in at #7, their highest preseason ranking in that poll in history. In fact, this is their third consecutive year being ranked in the preseason.
It’s just the latest praise in a preseason of accolades, which includes the Cats being picked to finish first in the SEC, A’dia Mathies being named SEC Preseason Player of the Year, and junior Samarie Walker making the All-SEC Second Team. A’dia Mathies also received honorable mention on the Associated Press preseason All-America team, which was released today.
You go, girls. Dance like no one’s watching.
