LEXINGTON, Ky. — University of Kentucky Athletics Director Mitch Barnhart named Kyra Elzy the head coach of the women's basketball team. She had previously been named interim coach after the retirement of Matthew Mitchell.

The Wildcats were previously ranked 9th before picking up two more wins last week. They will find out their latest ranking later on Monday.
