While Saturday was Senior Day for the men’s team, today is Senior Day for the women’s team as UK Hoops will recognize two senior guards.
Patterson is among the best defensive players in the nation, ranking top five nationally in steals and is a semifinalist for the 2021 Naismith Women’s Defensive Player of the Year. She’s also excelled on the offensive end, averaging 13 points per game.
Roach has played in six games this season and is a three-year member of the SEC Academic Honor Roll, while also a member of UK’s prestigious Frank G. Ham Society of Character.
According to UK Athletics, Seniors KeKe McKinney and Tatyana Wyatt have elected to return for an additional year of eligibility in 2021-22 and will not participate in the Senior Day ceremony.
McKinney plans to pursue a master’s degree and play for the 2021-22 squad, while Wyatt will continue her academic career and is still unsure on her athletic career for 2021-22.
Both McKinney and Wyatt plan to participate in Senior Day in 2022.
UK Hoops will also recognize two managers during Senior Day festivities.
You can catch the game on the SEC Network at Noon ET.
Tweet of the Day
Regardless of the outcome I cannot thank Big blue nation enough for the support and love I felt tonight & all season. Kentucky saved my life, helping me grow as a person & player, but most importantly letting me be the real me. For that, i’m forever thankful. Love always- 10— Davion Mintz (@deemintz1) February 28, 2021
Mintz has grown into one of my favorite players on this team.
Point guard play and lack of a go-to guy.
What happened to Keion Brooks?
Not the week off without a game.
One of the all-time greats in college basketball.
The Bears’ undefeated run has come to an end.
And snapped by a blowout.
It could be possible with Archie Miller’s future in question.
