LEXINGTON, Ky. – The University of Kentucky women’s basketball team held its first official practice of 2022-23 Tuesday, spending two hours on The Bell Family Court in the Joe Craft Center as the program prepares for its 49th season.

Kentucky head coach Kyra Elzy returns for her third season at the helm of the Wildcats, alongside associate head coach Niya Butts and assistant coaches Amber Smith and Jen Hoover. UK’s 15-person roster features five returners who combined for 44 starts last season. It also welcomes 10 newcomers, including six freshmen and four transfers from Buffalo, LSU, Oregon and South Carolina.
