Here’s our loyal fans that came all this way to take home a championship!!!
Coach Matthew Mitchell and the UK Hoops team defeated the Georgia Bulldogs tonight to earn themselves a one way ticket to the big dance tomorrow night! The final score was 38-60, with the Hoops holding Georgia to only scoring 14 to their 41 in the second half. Let’s break it down..
The beginning of the game was extra slop city, and honestly, I was freaking out. The Hoops came out and could not hit a single thing, looked kinda slow, and seemed to have some sort of breakdown in communication. The halftime score was 24-19, with Kentucky trailing. After halftime, the Hoops came out and something just seemed to click for them. Passes were connecting, shots were falling, and the arena was ringing with the cheers of the large group of Wildcat fans.
The Hoops were once again lead by A’dia Mathies and DeNesha Stallworth on the scoreboard, with Mathies scoring 11 and Stallworth scoring 18. Stallworth also had 5 rebounds, falling just one short to Azia Bishop’s game high 6 rebounds. The Hoops had a team total of 32 points in the paint, ten steals, and most impressively, 12 assists to Georgia’s 2. The team was only 41.1% from field goal range today, and will have to increase that percentage if they want to beat the Aggies tomorrow.
Matthew Mitchell began the post game presser by commenting that he was “proud of his players and excited for the opportunity to be playing in the championship tomorrow.” Coach Mitchell also said this about the Hoops first half, “we came down here believing we had a chance to win this tourney. It’s unacceptable not to compete at a high level.” My absolute favorite quote of the night was from A’dia Mathies, who said, “we didnt come here to get to the second round and lose, we came to win it all, to cut down nets.”
