The Kentucky Wildcats women’s basketball team will hold their Blue-White Scrimmage on Sunday, October 24th inside Memorial Coliseum, the school announced Wednesday.
The Wildcats, projected as a preseason top-25 team, return much of their production from the 2020-21 season, including consensus First Team All-American Rhyne Howard. Howard averaged 20.7 points and 7.3 rebounds per game and a team-high 91 assists. Kentucky’s third, fourth and fifth-leading scorers also return in Dre’una Edwards, Robyn Benton and Blair Green.
Point guard Jazmine Massengill, who missed the first half of the season due to NCAA transfer rules, finished second on the team in assists per game.
Overall, Kentucky returns 70% of its scoring, 3-pointers made and assists. They also return 63% of their rebounding and 58% of their steals.
