UT Lady VolsKnoxville, TN – No. 25/RV Tennessee women’s basketball team (9-3, 3-1 SEC) and No. 12/12 Kentucky (11-3, 4-2 SEC) meet Sunday afternoon, January 24th, 2021 in a border rivalry game that was originally slated to take place on January 3rd.

That contest was postponed after the Lady Vols had to pause practices and games because of COVID-19 Coronavirus contact tracing within the program. Sunday’s make-up matinee came about because UK had an open date and UT found itself without an opponent when Vanderbilt opted out of the season. The SEC then waved its wand and checked one postponed game off its list.
