UK Women Gearing Up For Tournament Run
After capturing the school's first SEC women's title in 30 years, Coach Matthew Mitchell's Wildcats will now prepare to defend their number one seeding in the conference tournament later this week.
With Sunday's 76-40 victory over Mississippi State, the Wildcats earned a first round bye and will take on the winner of the Auburn/Florida matchup Friday afternoon at 1 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.
During the regular season, UK defeated both of its possible opponents. The Wildcats handed the Gators two losses, winning in Gainesville 59-56 on Jan. 1 and in Lexington on Jan. 22, 57-52. UK also defeated Auburn in Auburn, Ala., on Jan. 26, 66-48.
UK finished the regular season with a 24 and 5 overall record, and a conference mark of 13 and 3.
