The hits just keeps coming for Kentucky head coach Matthew Mitchell, and these aren't the singing hits that he's noted for during Blue Madness. These are the kind of hits that can have a coach frustrated.

According to a report by Jen Smith in the Herald-Leader, a key contributor in Kyvin Goodin-Rogers has decided to transfer. She's the fourth player has decided to part ways with the program.

Here's a portion from the Herald-Leader:

"Kyvin has decided it is in her best interest to leave our program and play her remaining years elsewhere," Mitchell said in a release. "We appreciate all the hard work that Kyvin put in while she was with our program and wish her nothing but success on and off the court moving forward."

In less than a six weeks, four players have left Kentucky, most notably Linnae Harper, a 17-game starter who led the Cats in rebounding at 7.1 per game while scoring 9.2 points.

Earlier the preseason, starter Linnae Harper chose to transfer, which was a surprise, as she was the star returner for this year's team.

It will be interesting to see if impending move by Kyvin Goodin-Rogers will have any collateral or lingering effects, as the Wildcats' best player, Makayla Epps, is best friends with Kyvin Goodin-Rogers.
