Here’s a little from Kentucky coach Matthew Mitchell’s pregame press conference this morning at the Webster Bank Arena at Harbor Yard in preparation for its game Sunday against Delaware:
On former UConn forward Samarie Walker, who transferred to the Wildcats in January 2011 and debuted for them after mid-season last year.
“She made the SEC’s All-Defensive team. She one of the conference’s most dymanic defenders,” Mitchell said. “She did a lot for us, made us tough. She’s grown as a basketball player and is still improving. I think she is working very hard on who she wants to become as a person. That’s what we are trying to do here, give the kids a chance to find where their passion is and chase it. She’s doing a good job of that. It seems to be working out for her and she seems to be having a good experience.”
