LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky coach Matthew Mitchell has announced the hiring of Tamika Williams as an assistant coach.

Williams, 34, won NCAA championships at Connecticut in 2000 and ‘02 and set the Division I career field goal percentage record (70.3 percent) before becoming the sixth overall selection by the Minnesota Lynx in the 2002 WNBA Draft. She played six seasons with the Lynx and one with the Connecticut Sun, setting a single-season record for field goal percentage (67 percent) in 2003.

Williams was previously an assistant coach at Kansas and Ohio State and has worked as an ESPN analyst.

Mitchell noted Williams’ success at the college and pro levels and said in a release that “the wisdom she can provide our players will be an invaluable asset” to the program.
