Vitals: The 6-foot-3 junior forward is a transfer from Chipola College in Florida and originally from Lagos, Nigeria. Her major is community and leadership development. She was born Feb. 3, 1995.
The lowdown: Fastest, potentially most athletic player on the team and a hard worker both on and off the floor. Will add strong presence inside with ability to guard players at every position. Junior college player of the year, who averaged 21.2 points and 16.7 rebounds. Led her team to national championship last season.
Never miss a local story.

The lowdown: Excellent athlete rated as the second-best power forward in the nation by one recruiting service while averaging 12.5 points and 12 rebounds in high school last season. A long, physical presence around the basket, Camara is still developing her mid-range game and figuring things out defensively.
Vitals: The 6-foot sophomore guard is a transfer from Cincinnati from Lawrenceburg (Anderson County). Her major is integrated strategic communications. She was born Sept. 13, 1995.
The lowdown: Will sit out this season per NCAA transfer rules. She's an impressive shooter, who scored in double figures nine times off the Bearcats' bench last season. Cann shot nearly 35 percent from the field and 36.7 percent from three-point range at Cincinnati.
Vitals: The 5-foot-10 junior guard is from Lebanon (Marion County). Her major is social work. She was born June 6, 1995.
The lowdown: First Team All-Southeastern Conference guard, who led UK in scoring (16.3) and assists (3.0) last season, and could be more special this year with a summer of conditioning putting her in the best shape of her career. Strong, physical player who could be the difference maker for Cats this season.
Vitals: The 6-foot-1 junior forward is from Lebanon (Marion County). Her major is integrated strategic communications. She was born May 23, 1995.
The lowdown: Slowed by a knee scope and a minor wrist surgery this offseason, Goodin-Rogers will add some depth at wing as an active rebounder and strong defender. Averaged four points and 3.1 rebounds last season playing in all 34 games for Kentucky.
Vitals: The 6-foot-6 junior center is from Bratislava, Slovakia. Her major is psychology. She was born Aug. 20, 1994.
The lowdown: Junior-college transfer sat out last season with a stress fracture in her leg, which gave her time to focus on her shooting. Coach Matthew Mitchell expects the long, athletic player to make an impact this season playing on the wing offensively, and defensively in the post.
Vitals: The 6-foot-2 sophomore forward is from Madison, Ala. Her major is kinesiology. She was born March 7, 1996.
The lowdown: A summer of conditioning was good for the forward's speed and agility. Always an offensive threat for Kentucky, scoring in double figures 14 times last season while averaging 7.8 points a game. Still gaining confidence defensively.
Vitals: The 6-foot freshman guard is from Pineville (Bell County). Her major is biology. She was born May 7, 1996.
The lowdown: Smart, versatile guard who will add instant offense for UK after averaging 25.6 points, 7.9 rebounds a game in her senior season, when she was named Kentucky Miss Basketball. Still coming along on defense, but Mitchell likes how hard she works and her positive attitude.
Vitals: The 5-foot-6 freshman point guard is from Odenton, Md. Her major is undergraduate studies. She was born Jan. 29, 1997.
The lowdown: What she lacks in size at just 5-foot-6, she makes up for in speed and smarts. Will add spark and depth at the point guard spot as an aggressive defender with long arms and a nose for the ball (averaged seven steals and 8.8 rebounds a game in high school last year to go with her 29.6 points and 4.1 assists).
Vitals: The 6-foot-3 sophomore center is from Reynoldsburg, Ohio. Her major is management. She was born Nov. 13, 1995.
The lowdown: A summer working on speed, agility and shooting touch should help the 11-game starter (who averaged just 2.9 points and 2.7 rebounds a game last season) evolve from role player to consistent contributor. But first, Rice will miss at least a month with a stress reaction in her right foot.
Vitals: The 5-foot-7 senior guard is from Chicago. Her major is journalism. She was born Oct. 6, 1993.
The lowdown: Speedy guard was having one of the best seasons of her career before being sidelined by a gruesome leg injury that occurred in January. Coaches say she's not 100 percent back but will be a serious threat on both ends of the floor by SEC play. Thompson's vocal leadership, not just her points and assists, will be key to getting UK to the next level.
