🔵 The Official Daily Newsletter For Kentucky Athletics

Good morning. Time is flying by. It’s already March! Before you know it, our senior student-athletes will be going their own ways into the big world. Thankfully, The Kentucky Road is here to support our Cats. See how here.

What else are we mixing into today’s Brew?

🤸 Big shoutout for the Cats
🎧 Calipari on Reed Sheppard
🔵 And much, much more!


🔼 Eyes on the Wildcats. "Then you think about Raena Worley. We could go on about her forever. It's so special to have someone like her as a leader."

#6 ranked Kentucky Gymnastics got quite the shoutout from Bridget Sloan and Big Ten Analyst Olivia Karas! As discussed on the Flipping Out podcast, the Wildcats are currently projected as one of the four-seeded teams in the Cal Regional. 

Next up, the team takes on Florida in Rupp Arena this Sunday at 2:00 pm for Senior Day. 

🔼 What to Watch: On the UK HealthCare John Calipari Show, Tom Leach sat down with Calipari and talked about Reed Sheppard’s latest performance.

🔼 Needed More. The women’s basketball team fell to Ole Miss 75-45. The Cats had a slow start and didn’t bounce back after that. Amiya Jenkins and Saniah Tyler each had 10 points.
