    Miami (Ohio) at Kentucky

    When: 11 a.m.

    Records: UK 4-1, Miami (Ohio) 3-2

    Series: Kentucky leads 15-2

    Last meeting: Kentucky won 84-71 on Nov. 14, 2010, in Oxford, Ohio.

Youth will be served during Kentucky's women's basketball game against Miami (Ohio) on Wednesday morning.

The ninth-ranked Wildcats expect more than 2,000 sixth-graders from local elementary schools to be in attendance for "Class of 2019 Day."

The game tips off at 11 a.m. in Memorial Coliseum.

"We've tried to make certain that families here in town and young kids here in town know that they're important to us and it's a great experience for them to come to Memorial Coliseum and watch a game and see some great role models out there," Coach Matthew Mitchell said.

The Wildcats have won their last three games, including a 100-34 victory over USC Upstate on Sunday. The 66-point margin was the largest in Southeastern Conference play this season and the fifth-largest in UK women's history. The Cats will be looking for their 24th consecutive win at home.

Miami, picked to win the Mid-American Conference East Division, is 3-2 after a 76-56 loss to Youngstown State on Sunday at home.
