Scenes from UK Hoops Media Day

Expectations are high for the University of Kentucky women's basketball team. Despite the loss of Southeastern Conference player of the year Victoria Dunlap, the Wildcats return most of the team that won 25 games last year, have guard Amber Smith back after sitting our last year with an injury and have signed one of the nation's best recruiting classes. Kentucky had four McDonald's All-Americans on the roster.


The Wildcats play an exhibition against Coker College on Sunday, Nov. 6 at 2 p.m. at Memorial Coliseum. Admission is free. Coker is coached by former UK player Jenny Pfeiffer.

Kentucky opens the regular season on Nov. 11 at Morehead State, then has its home opener on Nov. 15 against Jacksonville State with a special 11 a.m. tipoff.
