Wednesday wasn’t easy for the Kentucky women’s basketball team.
Head coach Kyra Elzy lost sophomore guard Jada Walker to the transfer portal — just three days after freshman guard Kennedy Cambridge announced her decision to leave the program.
Both transfers are significant losses, especially for a Kentucky team that had a season to forget.
Despite a somewhat crowded backcourt and the team having a down season, Walker averaged 12.9 points, 3.1 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 2.6 steals. She was one of the lone bright spots of the year for Kentucky and was considered to be a key part of the team’s future.
Cambridge only played 14.4 minutes per game this year and averaged 2.7 points. But she was considered a key piece of this year’s class, and losing her is a major blow.
Kentucky will head into the offseason with many questions — most concerning the future of the program from top to bottom — and these two transfers won’t make that any easier.
