UK Women's Basketball

UK’s 2018-19 women’s basketball schedule is out. Two games in Rupp, plus some tweaks.

Kentucky women’s basketball, led by senior Maci Morris, announced its finalized schedule for the upcoming season. The Cats will have road games in league play at Mississippi State, Tennessee, LSU, Texas A&M, Auburn, Alabama, South Carolina and Georgia.

The final pieces of Kentucky’s schedule puzzle were placed on Thursday when the school announced its Southeastern Conference games and made a couple of other tweaks.

The UK women’s basketball team will play its SEC opener at home against Vanderbilt on Jan. 3, capping a five-game home stand in Memorial Coliseum.

But the Cats face trips to hostile venues after that, playing at Mississippi State and then at Tennessee in the next two games.

Kentucky will play home-and-away games this season against Texas A&M and LSU as well as their annual two games with South Carolina.

Two Rupp Arena games were announced with the finalized schedule, first against Virginia on Nov. 15 and then against Florida on Feb. 3.

A non-conference game originally scheduled for Nov. 29 versus Morehead State was moved up a day to Nov. 28 in Memorial Coliseum.
