The third player in as many weeks is transferring out of the UK Hoops program. Morgan Rich, a freshman guard out of Scottsville, KY and Allen County High School has requested a transfer, per a release from UK Athletics.

As a senior at Allen Co., Rich averaged 20 points and 7 rebounds and was the high school’s all time leading scorer. According to ESPN, she was the 93rd best player in the 2015 class. Like Makayla Epps, Rich also sat out of Big Blue Madness because she had not met certain program standards.

“We appreciate Morgan’s work while she was part of our program and wish her nothing but continued success,” said Coach Matthew Mitchell.

This is following news released today that the Hoops received a #17/18 ranking in the two preseason polls.

Kentucky will only have nine available players for their first exhibition game on Sunday, as Makayla Epps is still out on suspension.

The Hoops will face Union University in Memorial on Sunday at 5 pm.


Go Cats.

      At some point more of an explanation is needed.

    Needs to be investigated.

      It doesn’t need to be investigated. If you act a fool, don’t keep up with academics or fail to do the things you signed on for, them consequences follow….up to, and including, not being on the team. There is a high standard UK coaches have set for student athletes, and those standards can’t be comprimised. This program isn’t for everyone.

      Coach Michell is probabley paying for escorts or something. Where theyre is smoak, there is fire.

    The third player (Chrishea Rowe) was dismissed from the team, so it may not have necessarily been her choice to transfer… gotta meet those standards! Personally, I trust Coach Mitchell and the program he’s running.

    Three transfers before we’ve played a game? That’s not normal. We are correct in wanting an explanation.

    This will be totally politically incorrect and I will be crushed for writing this, however, here goes….

    There is and always has been a very strong Lesbian presence within women’s sports. Maybe the straight girls are leaving due to the situation on UK’s team? ….not that there is anything wrong with that.

    Just a thought….

    Does this indicate a challenging environment for UK’s women athletes? Maybe Sports Illustrated should investigate.

    93rd best player? Mitchell shouldn’t have signed her in the first place!

    When did they become “The Hoops”? That sounds like a WNBA team. Keep it simple “Lady Cats”.
