Unfortunate news for the Kentucky Women’s Basketball team. According to UK, Rhyne Howard will not play tonight vs. Missouri due to a fractured finger on her left hand. She is expected to return to action in mid-February.
The sophomore star dislocated her finger vs. Auburn on Monday, but returned to the game after getting her hand taped up and splinted. Because she’s a badass, she ended up leading the Cats to the 68-61 victory, driving the lane for a big bucket, forcing a turnover, blocking a shot, and icing the game with a pair of free throws.
Get well soon, Rhyne. Tonight’s game tips off at 7 p.m. on the SEC Network.
