A Sea of Blue: 'A'dia Mathies has officially come into her own in her senior year'

Greg Alan Edwards of SB Nation's Kentucky Wildcats site was among A'dia Mathies' harshest critics earlier this season. But yesterday he gave credit where credit was due after Mathies' impressive performance in a 75-53 win over the Vanderbilt Commodores.

A'dia Mathies has officially come into her own in her Senior year. I was vocal and persistent in criticizing her when SEC play started, and I believe it was justified. However, when she made up her mind that she was going to get back to leading this team, she has come on full bore. Game Ball. 28 points on 10-17 shooting, 5-9 from the arc, and 3-3 from the line will get you a win from A'Dia every time. She started out hot, and got even better as the Cats jumped on her back and rode all the way to the win.
