Feb. 18, 2015

LEXINGTON, Ky. – The University of Kentucky women’s basketball game against Texas A&M on Thursday night will proceed as scheduled, University officials announced on Wednesday afternoon.

Fans are encouraged to use extreme caution and proper discretion if they are planning on attending the game, with temperatures expected to be well below freezing and hazardous road conditions.

In addition to season ticket holders and those who had single-game tickets for Thursday night’s game – all attendees of the game who can safely make it to Memorial Coliseum will be admitted free of charge.

The game will tip off at its scheduled time of 7 p.m. ET in Memorial Coliseum. The game can be seen online as well as through smartphones and tablets via the WatchESPN app, ESPN3, and can be heard live on the UK Sports Radio Network with Neil Price calling the action.

Current affiliated providers for authenticated access to SEC Network and SEC Network + on WatchESPN include AT&T U-verse, Charter, Comcast, Cox, DISH, Google Fiber, Suddenlink*, NCTC, NRTC and NTTC. NCTC and NTTC will have access when member companies launch the WatchESPN app later in the month.

While UK Athletics and Campus officials are working hard to help minimize the impact of severe weather on the streets, parking lots, and sidewalks around Memorial Coliseum, there will likely be a reduced amount of spaces available due to snow and ice buildup. 

Guests are urged to use extreme caution if deciding to attend the game as conditions may be dangerous.  Shuttle services from the South Limestone Garage (next to Kennedy’s Bookstore) as well as from the Transit Center Garage (off High Street and Lexington Avenue) will be available starting at 5:30pm.  Doors to the Coliseum will open 1 hour prior to tip-off (6:00pm). All shuttles will be heated and handicap accessible.

Thursday night is UK’s annual #Play4Kay game, where the Wildcats will be wearing pink uniforms to help promote research and development for breast cancer. Fans are strongly encouraged to wear pink to the game and help the cause.

Doors to Memorial Coliseum will open at 6 p.m. ET, one hour prior to tip off.
