“Some of the passes she makes are just incredible, and she leads us in assists. So, she’s just one of those players that you don’t get very often,”
“She’s done a lot for us. She’s one that can create off the dribble and not only create like I said for herself, but also her teammates.”

Missouri led for all but 52 seconds of Wednesday night’s matchup with Kentucky. But the game was far from one-sided. The Tigers jumped out to a 13-point halftime lead, but the Wildcats wouldn’t go away. Kentucky started the second half on a 10-1 run, and five different times during the final 20 minutes, it cut Missouri’s lead to one possession. Every time, Missouri found an answer, with several different players coming up clutch down the stretch. The Tigers ultimately won 75-70, improving to 12-3 overall and 5-3 in SEC play, which puts them alone in second place in the league standings.
ESPN reported Wednesday there were more than 20 Kansas City Chiefs players and staffers – including star quarterback Patrick Mahomes – that were scheduled Sunday to get a haircut with a barber who tested positive for COVID-19.
Two Chiefs players – receiver Demarcus Robinson and center Daniel Kilgore – landed on the team’s COVID-19 reserve list after a positive test from a barber brought into Arrowhead.
But that list could have been much longer, Schefter reported.
“The Chiefs acted wisely and aggressively and pulled the barber — mid-cut — once his test results came in,” Schefter reported.
Schefter reported Kilgore was mid-haircut when the barber was notified that he was COVID-19 positive. Schefter reported both Kilgore and the barber were wearing masks.
Kilgore has remained away from the team since being added to the list. He has tested negative and can return to the team on Saturday when the Chiefs depart for the Super Bowl in Tampa. Schefter said, per a source, that Kilgore should be able to play Sunday.
The NFL Network reported Tuesday, citing sources close to the team, that the barber involved tested negative five consecutive days before being allowed to enter the Chiefs’ facility.
The barber reportedly took an additional rapid test before entering the facility Sunday, but the NFL Network reported those results were slightly delayed because of a line of friends and family also entering the facility around the same time.
The NFL Network said the barber was wearing double personal protective equipment when the positive test results came back.
