After Kentucky won the first game of the Super Regional in Eugene, the top seeded Ducks turned on the gas pedal to end the softball team’s season.
The road wasn’t easy for the Cats, who finished the season 35-21. They played the nations second-hardest schedule and became only the third team in NCAA history to run rule their way through the region.
The team will lose three seniors, Brooklin Hinz, Rachael Metzler and Erin Rethlake, but will in turn return a loaded roster to compete for an SEC title next season.
One of the more interesting parts of the series in Eugene was the Rich Brooks factor. He tuned in and tweeted his congratulations to… both teams?
You gotta choose one coach!
Kentucky Baseball on the bubble still
With the NCAA tournament being announced tomorrow, the Kentucky baseball team is still waiting to see whether they will hear their name called. In they don’t, it will put a damper on what had been a season with extremely high expectations.
While strictly sitting on the bubble, the team does seem to be in good shape heading into the last day before the tournament. Our own Trey Huntsman gave a breakdown of who to watch this weekend. You can find that by clicking here.

Warriors defeat Rockets to force Game Seven
Behind big performances from Klay Thompson, Steph Curry and Kevin Durant, the Warriors cruised to a big victory to force a Game Seven in Houston. The will be the first time since 1978 that both of the Conference Finals have a game seven.
The Rockets jumped out to a 39-24 lead after the first quarter and looked to have survived the Chris Paul injury, but the home team had other ideas. The Warriors outscored the Rockets 64-25 in the second half to blow out the number one seed.
Tonight, LeBron James travels to Boston to take on the Celtics in a game seven. Boston has yet to lose a playoff game at home this season, but if we have ever learned one thing, it is that you can NEVER count out LeBron and the Cavs.
Tragedy Strikes an AAU Tournament
Some extremely sad news broke last night from the Boo Williams Hampton 17UEYBL, where a player, James Hampton, collapsed on the court. He later passed away at a local hospital. While Hampton had no connection to Kentucky, this is an absolute tragedy and our thoughts go out to his family, friends and teammates at Team United.
