Game thread: Kentucky Women’s Basketball vs. Morehead State

Can the Cats bounce back from a tough road loss to beat the Eagles?

NCAA Basketball: Canisius at Kentucky Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

Saturday’s road game to Colorado ended with a disastrous 10 point loss, brought on by 17 turnovers, a measly 2 blocks and a truly horrific 57% FT performance. It was pretty ugly all around, and yet Matthew Mitchell saw the glass more than half-full.

Your lips to the Basketball gods’ ears, Coach. Hope you and the staff have been aggressive on film review, because these Cats need it.

Tonight Kentucky opens up a three game homestretch by welcoming their Eastern KY sisters from Morehead State. The Eagles are currently 3-1, having lost their season opener to Georgia State before rattling off three easy wins against Eastern Michigan, Allice Lloyd College and Miami of Ohio.

The last time these teams faced off, Makayla Epps pulled off the third triple double in Kentucky basketball history, with 21 points 12 rebounds and 11 assists. Final score 112-57. Will we see a repeat tonight?

“See” may be relative as this game is not televised. You can tune in on 630 WLAP in Lexington or by pulling up the stream on ESPN 3. Tipoff is at 7 EST.

Until then, Go Big Blue!
