UK athletics

Jada Walker scored 19 points and Robyn Benton added 17 as the Kentucky women’s basketball team opened its season with an 82-78 win over Radford
on Monday night at Memorial Coliseum.

The Cats struggled shooting the ball, hitting 33 of 73 (45.2 percent) from the floor, including just two of 18 (11.1 percent) from behind the arc.

However, UK turned defense into offense, forcing 16 Radford turnovers and turning those into 18 points.

Kentucky returns to action on Friday, hosting Morehead State at Memorial Coliseum. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. and the game can be seen on SEC Network Plus.
