The offseason wasn’t an ideal one for Matthew Mitchell’s women’s basketball program, but the team will begin its 2016-17 campaign with a top-20 preseason ranking for a seventh straight year.

On Thursday, USA Today released its preseason coaches’ poll and UK Hoops is ranked No. 19 on the list.

19. Kentucky (25-8, 10-6 SEC)

A rash of transfers over the last two seasons, including three players since the end of the 2015-16 campaign, has hindered the Wildcats’ depth and continuity. Despite the turnover, Kentucky reached the Sweet 16 last season.

If you had UConn as the No. 1 team, you, of course, are correct. UConn is always No. 1.

Go UK Hoops.
