And now for some unfortunate news. According to WKYT’s Steve Moss, UK Hoops head coach Matthew Mitchell has suspended star guard Makayla Epps from the team indefinitely. Last week, Epps pleaded not guilty to several alcohol-related charges in Marion County District Court, including possession of alcohol by a minor and having an open container in a motor vehicle.
Mitchell says Epps is banned from all team activities and will only be allowed back on the team when she has met his and the team’s goals. From there, she’s looking at at least a one-game suspension.
