Kentucky's women's basketball team goes for a school-record 31st consecutive home win when they welcome Texas A&M to Memorial Coliseum, which head coach Matthew Mitchell calls the best home court in the SEC.

LEXINGTON, Ky. - The Kentucky women's basketball team has won 30 consecutive home games, which is the nation's second longest active win streak behind Baylor's 47 straight home wins.

Thursday night against Texas A&M, UK will go for home win number 31 in a row, which would set a new school record.

Cats coach Matthew Mitchell said there is no tougher place to play in the SEC than Memorial Coliseum.

“I think our home court is the best home court in the SEC just because of how passionate our fans are and how our fans were turning out before we had any type of streak like this. That is why I respect our fans so much," Mitchell said on Wednesday. "We were getting great crowds when we were 16-16 and quite frankly I didn’t enjoy watching us play very much and we would still have 4,000-5,000 people come watch us play. To me, it is the best because they just love Kentucky and they love women’s basketball."

No. 6 Kentucky vs. No. 20 Texas A&M is set for a 6 PM ET tip-off Thursday.
