Getting to know the 2020-21 Kentucky Women’s Basketball Team: First-years and sophomores

The incoming rendition of the Kentucky Wildcats Women’s Basketball team will be headlined by several juniors and seniors, including the likely favorite to win National Player of the Year, but the roster turnover from a season ago has brought in plenty of fresh faces.

Five seniors departed from a year ago, three of them rotational guards–Jaida Roper, Sabrina Haines, Amanda Paschal–along with forwards Ogechi Anyagaligbo and Nae Nae Cole. Deasia Merrill, who missed her freshman season after tearing her ACL, transferred to Georgia State back in July.

But eight players will return, three of them starters and another two key who came off the bench, along with the addition of one immediately eligible transfer.
