The Kentucky women's basketball team won its season opener on Friday 75-61 over Marist in Poughkeepsie, New York.

Senior Kastine Evans scored a team-high 15-points and grabbed 8-rebounds for Kentucky.  It's the most points she's scored in a game in two years.

Senior Samarie Walker added 12-points and pulled down a game-high 10 rebounds.  She also had a team-high three steals.

Sophomore Janee Thompson finished with 13-points, which was just one shy of her career high.

All 11 Wildcats in uniform played.  Freshman Makayla Epps did not play due to a stomach virus.
