UK Hoops drops fourth straight game (that’s not good)

USA Today

Things are not going well for the Kentucky women’s basketball program these days.

Today the Cats dropped a home afternoon contest to No. 24 California, 62-52, which makes four straight losses in the month of December. Jen Smith noted that it had been 15 years since UK Hoops lost four straight games to non-conference opponents.

As for today’s loss, Maci Morris scored 21 points and grabbed eight rebounds, and Kentucky grabbed 25 offensive rebounds as a team, in the defeat. Matthew Mitchell said afterwards, “We have to keep our confidence as a team and just go back to work.”

Up next for UK Hoops: on the road at Middle Tennessee State a week from today to hopefully break the four-game losing skid.

    I usually don’t subscribe or the theory of running off coaches and their staff. What ever happened a couple years ago, which we were never made privy too, even though it is a state university funded with state funds, has evidently had a negative impact on recruiting top level women players. We had players and coaches running from this program faster than people fleeing a sinking ship. I think it will be a long time before we get back to level we were 4-5 years ago recruiting. So, what will it take to correct our present course of loosing? Sometimes when a coach goes through what ever went on needs a change and so does the university.

    On a down hill slide and picking up speed. Afraid the L’s will really add up when conference play begins. Stay tuned!
