Three UK Women's basketball players to enter transfer portal

Associated Press

A major shakeup is coming for the Kentucky Women’s Basketball team roster next season. A UK spokesman has confirmed that Dre'Una Edwards, Treasure Hunt, and Jazmine Massengill have all entered the transfer portal.

Edwards’ 3 point shot from the top of the key helped secure the Wildcats’ first SEC title in 40 years, but she also had been suspended for multiple games due to “disciplinary issues” earlier in the season. The UK women were eliminated by the Princeton Tigers in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament.

The announcement comes one day after Kentucky native and UK sophomore Dontaie Allen decided to leave the men’s team and put his name into the transfer portal.

Bitten by the radio bug as a teenager, Alan Lytle got his start start more than 30 years ago volunteering in Clermont County, Ohio for WOBO-FM. He graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Broadcasting from the University of Cincinnati and worked at a variety of radio stations in the Cincinnati market, then made the move to Lexington in the mid-1990s.
