UK women prepare for Bradley

LEXINGTON, Ky. – The seventh-ranked Kentucky women’s basketball team will play host to Bradley in Memorial Coliseum on Wednesday, Nov. 25 at Noon ET. UK will look to improve to 7-0 for the first time since 2011-12 and third time under head coach Matthew Mitchell.

Single-game reserved tickets cost of $9 for all ages. General admission tickets for adults are $8 while single-game general admission tickets for seniors and children (ages 6-18, 65 and over) are only $5. UK faculty, staff and children ages five and under are admitted free in the general admission seating area, while supplies last. Season tickets are also still available for just $65. Lower-level chair back seating ($80) is sold out.

Fans are asked to bring unused toiletry items travel size or regular size (tooth brush, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant) to either game. The items will be donated to Bluegrass Hospitality Group's Thanksgiving Dinner for the less fortunate, which will take place on Thanksgiving Day (Thursday, Nov. 28) from 11-2 p.m. ET at Malone's and Sal's on Tates Creek Road.

Fans who donate items will receive a voucher for a free box of popcorn with their donation. Fans can bring their toiletry items to any of the UK Marketing gazebos located inside Memorial Coliseum.

“We are asking people in the community to help the people who are less fortunate than we are by bringing any unused or new toiletry items that we are going to distribute at a Thanksgiving meal on Thursday,” Mitchell said. “We had a great response to that at our last home game and we are asking the community to rally and really help us out with that community service initiative. We would really be appreciative of that.”

Wednesday’s game also is the first of three UK sporting events for the “Big Blue Triathlon.” UK Hoops has the first event at Noon followed by men’s basketball vs. Eastern Michigan in Rupp Arena at 4 p.m. ET. The triathlon concludes at 8 p.m. ET in Memorial Coliseum where the volleyball team plays host to Florida in the squad’s regular-season finale.
