  • Vaught’s Views: Like father,...

    By Larry Vaught

    From the time she stepped on the court at Kentucky, Makayla Epps knew there would be comparisons to her father, former UK point guard Anthony Epps.
    She didn’t mind because her father has had a huge influence on her game. However, she also thinks of him in a bit different manner.
    “Me and him are a lot the same. My mom says I am like his twin. It’s crazy because he’s male and I am female. We are 20 years apart but we are so similar with actions, emotions,” the Kentucky senior said.
