Kentucky junior guard Maci Morris became the 33rd player in program history to eclipse 1,000 points for her career during a 65-48 victory vs. the Auburn Tigers on Thursday.
Morris entered the game four points shy of the 1,000 point mark and it didn’t take her long to put her name among the best in program history. Morris scored the first six points of the game for the Wildcats, both three-pointers. Her second one put her over the mark.
