Former Lady Knight Makayla Epps was involved in an automobile accident Saturday evening on the Bluegrass Parkway, but that didn’t stop her from scoring eight points and grabbing three rebounds in the Kentucky women’s basketball win over East Tennessee State on Sunday.
“Somebody ran into me. But, I’m here and that’s the best thing. Nothing terrible happened. I’m here and I got the opportunity to play,” Epps said in postgame comments posted on the UK women’s basketball website.
