Kentucky blows out Grambling State in Memorial Coliseum 81-35 bringing them to a 6-0 start. The Cats started out slow but midway through the first half they started making their shots and playing tough defensively. Rhyne Howard had another great game as she finished with 27 points, 5 rebounds, and 2 assists. Howard knocked down four from behind the arch and had several mid-range jumpers, making her an all-around force. Jaida Roper was the perfect teammate as she had 10 points, 7 assist, and 3 steals on the defensive side of the ball. KeKe McKinney had a monster night as she had 9 points, 3 steals, 4 blocks, and 6 rebounds and continues to get big stops on the defensive side of the ball, she brings a lot to this team you won’t see in the stats. Blair Green seemed to finally look comfortable and relaxed as she had a solid game with 12 points, 3 assist, and 3 rebounds for the Cats. Kentucky is back in action on Sunday, December 1st against Austin Peay, after a short holiday break, that game can be seen on the SecNetwork at 4pm.
