After a hot shooting start, Matthew Mitchell’s squad controlled the game throughout to win their fifth straight against the Louisville Cardinals. Simply put, Kentucky just didn’t miss many buckets, making 52% of their field goals and hitting 43% from 3-point land.
Nobody shot better than Makayla Epps. The home-state superstar scored 24 points on 10-11 shooting. She had plenty of help along the way. Alexis Jennings’s mid-range game was dead on, scoring 14 points on 7-11 shooting, Maci Morris was 2-3 from 3-point land, and Taylor Murray had 11 points. Janee Thompson made sure she never lost to Louisville, finishing with 10 points and 3 assists.
It’s hard to stop somebody when they can’t miss. UofL couldn’t stop Makayla Epps tonight.
More to come from the game later tonight.
