LEXINGTON, Ky. – The No. 9/8 University of Kentucky women’s basketball team is offering a special doubleheader deal when they play host to Morehead State Friday, Nov. 23 in the second annual “Terry Hall Memorial Classic” at 4 p.m. ET in Memorial Coliseum. Any fan with a ticket to the men’s basketball game in Rupp Arena set for 7 p.m. ET vs. Long Island-Brooklyn will receive free admission to the UK Hoops game.
Kentucky introduced the “Terry Hall Memorial Classic” last season to honor Terry Hall, the all-time winningest coach in UK Hoops history.
Hall coached the Cats to seven consecutive winning seasons from 1980-87, charting a 138-66 overall record (67.7%). She owns the most wins and the best winning percentage of any coach to guide the program. She started with a 25-6 record in 1980-81 and a trip to the second round of the AIAW national tournament before falling by one point to Maryland. The NCAA welcomed women’s basketball into its ranks the following year, and that historical season ended with the Cats falling to eventual national champion Louisiana Tech in the Midwest Regional finals on the Lady Techsters’ home floor. After the Cats failed to make the NCAA tournament in 1986-87, Hall left coaching for the business sector. But three years later, she accepted the head coaching job at Wright State University, where she coached for seven years before succumbing to cancer in 1997.
Single-game reserved tickets are also available at a cost of $9 for all ages. General admission tickets for adults are $8, while single-game general admission tickets for seniors and children (ages 6-18, 65 and over) are only $5. Children ages five and under are admitted free in the general admission seating area.
Fans wishing to attend the UK Hoops game may enter Memorial Coliseum one hour prior to tip-off.
