Kentucky Wildcats Women's Basketball
The first University of Kentucky women's basketball team was organized in 1902. They competed for the first
time on February 21, 1903. In 1924, despite a perfect 10-0 season, the University Senate passed a bill to abolish women's
basketball. According to state politicians, "Basketball had proven to be a strenuous sport for boys and therefore was too
strenuous for girls."
Fifty years later women's basketball was granted varsity status with most of the official records
maintained by the university only reflect games since that time. The Kentucky Wildcats women's basketball team have reached
national rankings as high as No. 4. The team has claimed victory at the SEC Women's Basketball Tournament once (1982). And
