Matthew Mitchell, Makayla Epps and Evelyn Akhator represented UK Hoops at day two of SEC Media Days this afternoon.

The Wildcats are projected to finish fourth in the SEC behind Tennessee, Mississippi State and South Carolina. They finished fourth in the SEC last season, winning 10 of their 16 conference games.

Led by Makayla Epps, who is a preseason All-SEC pick, and Evelyn Akhator, the Lady Cats have high expectations that they can go deep into the NCAA tournament this year, despite massive roster turnover this offseason.

Here’s what Mitchell, Akhator and Epps had to say about their expectations for the season and how this offseason has motivated them.
