Kentucky’s Victoria Dunlap, the Southeastern Conference Player of the Year, was seen by doctors on Monday afternoon and has been diagnosed with a hyperextension of the knee. She has been cleared to play and is listed as probable for UK’s game versus Tennessee Tech on Tuesday night at Memorial Coliseum, a UK spokesman said. The 6-foot-1 senior forward went down clutching her left knee in the waning minutes of the Cats’ loss at Louisville on Sunday. She had to be helped off the court by two student managers.
A’dia Mathies, the SEC Freshman of the Year, also was better on Monday after suffering from severe leg cramps in the Louisville loss.
Also, Kentucky (5-1) dropped from No. 8 to No. 14 in the latest Associated Press poll, which was released on Monday afternoon.
