UK women's basketball team is also undefeated

By  | 

There's a pretty good chance that if you live in Kentucky, you know a thing or two about the UK men's basketball team. But what do you know about the women's basketball team?

We surveyed several UK students who were not able to name one player on the team and had no idea what their record was.

Like their male counterparts, the UK women's basketball team is also undefeated so far this season.

Head coach Matthew Mitchell says he's not bothered by all the attention the men's team has been getting lately. In fact, he says it's been great for his team.

"If our players get any motivation from the guys in terms of being excellent, I think it helps," Mitchell said.

Junior forward Victoria Dunlap agrees with her coach.

"It's not negative," she says, "It just helps us work harder and show people that we can play harder."

Mitchell and Dunlap agree that the women's games are very exciting and encourage people to come out and watch.

The next game for the UK women's basketball team is against the Louisville Cardinals on Sunday. Tip-off is at 1:00 p.m. at Memorial Coliseum.
