LEXINGTON, Ky. - A special season-ticket package for Kentucky women's basketball's eight home games in 2009 will go on sale Monday, Dec. 15 for a cost of just $25.

The Wildcats, who have ranked in the top-25 nationally and in the Southeastern Conference's top four in average attendance five consecutive seasons, have already sold over 3,200 season for the entire season.

"We thought this would be a great gift for the holidays," UK Hoops Coach Matthew Mitchell said. "We average close to 4,000 fans per game right now and they have been absolutely super. We also have an exciting home schedule in 2009 and eight games for just $25 is a great deal. We hope our fans continue to come out and support us because they truly are our sixth man and what makes Memorial Coliseum such a unique place to play."

The second half of the season in Memorial Coliseum features eight home contests, including seven against SEC competition. The league portion is highlighted by matchups with defending NCAA Champion Tennessee (WBCA Pink Zone game) and 2008 Final Four participant LSU (Pack the House game).
