Makayla Epps will play her final game in Memorial Coliseum Thursday when Kentucky hosts Mississippi State. She could play again in Lexington if UK makes the Sweet Sixteen since Rupp Arena will be a host site for one NCAA Regional.
Epps has had an illustrious career. Her 1,664 points ranks fifth in UK history and her 389 assists rank eighth all-time.
She has been able to take sophomores Maci Morris and Taylor Murray basically under her wing for two years. Next year they won’t have her with them for the first time.
