Sore shoulder


LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Makayla Epps had to go to the bench against Oklahoma Monday night.  A nasty stinger to her right shoulder sent her to the tunnel a few times to work things out.  The first time Epps tried to go back in, it didn’t look promising.

Today, at the team’s shoot-around at Rupp to get ready for Washington in the Sweet 16, Epps was still holding and touching her sore shoulder.
