Kentucky Women’s Basketball released their full 2017-18 schedule today. After one exhibition game, the Cats begin play in the Matthew Mitchell Classic. The biggest highlight in November is the Big 12-SEC Challenge when the Cats travel to Waco, Texas to take on Baylor.
December is not filled with cupcakes, either. Several teams on the Cats’ schedule were ranked in the top 25 at some point during the 2016-17 season (FGCU, Miami (FL), Louisville), but these games should help prepare Mitchell’s team for the brutal SEC schedule that includes 2 games against defending National Champion South Carolina, as well as 2 games against Final Four team, Mississippi State.
Even though Kentucky will be without Makayla Epps and Evelyn Akhator this year (both were drafted by the WNBA), Coach Mitchell has signed a stellar class to join Taylor Murray, Maci Morris, Alyssa Rice, and Jaida Roper.
