NEW YORK —
Mitchell said Middle Tennessee State’s plan reinforced to him how far Kentucky (8-1) has come as a program under his watch the past several years.
“What’s so great about having a talented team is if you spend too much time on one person, it opens it up for other people,” Mitchell said. “We just beat a good basketball team by 22, and A’dia had zero points in the first half. It’s a good sign that we have that (balance).”
The two teams have now played five years in a row, and Blue Raiders coach Rick Insell said Stallworth is the best post player he’s seen on the Wildcats in that span.
Stallworth, a transfer from California playing her first season after sitting out last season, has scored double figures in seven of Kentucky’s nine games this season and averages 11.3 points per game.
