The #14 Kentucky Women’s Basketball team takes a loss 67-66 to #7 Louisville at Rupp Arena. Kentucky fought but they couldn’t come away with the win at home as Louisville got key rebounds and steals on the defensive end of the floor. Rhyne Howard had another outstanding game with 26 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists, and 2 steals. Sabrina Haines had 12 points, 4 assists, and 1 rebound. Jaida Roper brought the intensity off the bench and made clutch plays on defensive end down the stretch. Tatyana Wyatt finished with 12 points, and 5 rebounds in a mis-match down low most of the night. Kentucky’s 10 game win streak comes to an end, but heading into their next game we will see a new face on the floor as Junior Guard Chasity Patterson becomes eligible and will be another offensive threat. The Cats head West to take on University of California on Saturday, December 21st at 7 pm EST, broadcast schedule is TBD.
