The Cats won 73-63, and Ajae Petty had an impressive 22 points and a career-high 19 rebounds. Brooklynn Miles and Emma King were also in the double digits for points. Miles had 12, and King had 10. The women shot 44.4% from the field, while Arkansas only made 33.3%.

🔼 Celebrating 50. The gymnastics team is in its 50th season, and that gives us a great reason to throw a party. If you are a UK gymnastics alumna, we want to see you at the celebration! The celebration is Jan. 26-28, and here are the details. Not an alumna? Don’t worry! You can see all past gymnastics athletes as they attend the Jan. 26 meet when the Cats take on Georgia.


Starting Strong. With all this talk about gymnastics, let's see how much you really know about the team. The Cats rank in the top 10 this season. In the Super 16 meet this weekend, they will face three teams who are also ranked.
