Maci Morris is taking her talents to Europe. The former Kentucky women’s basketball star told WYMT that she’s signed a contract with USE Scotti Empoli in Italy.
“I mean it’s been a dream of mine since I was little, and just to be able to go and experience the world using basketball, I mean I couldn’t ask for anything more,” Morris told WYMT. “That was the main goal – to play professionally, get paid playing ball and just be able to have the experience going overseas.”
Morris, a Bell County native, averaged 15.1 points per game in her senior season at Kentucky, with a team-best 75 threes and 45.2% from long range. She ranks sixth all-time in scoring with 1,692 points, second in threes with 252, and first in three-point percentage, connecting on 41.1% of her attempts.
Buona fortuna, Maci!
