Tonight a pair of former Kentucky Wildcats will be inducted into the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame. Former head coach Mickie DeMoss and letterwinner Ceal Berry will be honored in Knoxville, Tennessee.
After winning six National Championships as an assistant for Pat Summitt at Tennessee, DeMoss came to Lexington in 2003 to rebuild Kentucky’s program. Within three years she had the Cats in the NCAA Tournament, earning SEC Coach of the Year honors. Since her departure from UK in 2007, she’s served as an assistant five different programs and is currently on LSU’s coaching staff.
Ceal Berry is a Louisville native and graduate from Assumption High School that became one of the first UK female student-athletes to receive scholarship aid for athletics. A four-year guard at Kentucky, she’ll be honored with the Sue Feamster Trailblazer Award for her 22 seasons as Colorado’s head coach.
