Kentucky Wins to Advance to Championship Sunday
Yesterday I was back at Melissa Cook Stadium to cover Kentucky for the second day in a row. They were in the winners bracket, and simply had to win to advance to Sunday. A loss would mean a twilight game that would be do or die. Luckily the Wildcat bats were ready, and they handled Ball State. It has been a pleasure to cover Kentucky over the last couple of days. The players, coaches, and everyone associated with the team has been great. They are a great bunch of women, and I hope that they can continue playing well into this tournament. They have just Notre Dame standing in their way right now. The scenario tomorrow is easy. Any Kentucky win will send them to the next round. Notre Dame must beat the Wildcats twice to advance. Notre Dame played very well today getting the two wins needed to keep playing. I think that tomorrow will be an interesting and emotionally charged day.
I have a gallery up on the Kentucky website here. I also have included a couple of photos below that I liked from the day.
