Kentucky volleyball sweeps Purdue, moves on to Sweet 16

@KentuckyVB

Following yet another dominant performance, the Kentucky volleyball team is moving on to the next round of the NCAA Tournament.

In their Round of 32 appearance, the Wildcats swept the Purdue Boilermakers 3-0 to move on to the Sweet 16.

Kentucky won set one 25-20, set two 25-21, and set three with a whopping 25-14 closeout performance. This is the team’s second-consecutive sweep in the tournament, also shutting out Murray State in the first round last night.

Star outside hitter Leah Edmond led the way with 13 kills, followed by Brooke Morgan with 12. Gabby Curry finished with a team-high 18 digs, with Alli Stumler also adding 15. Setter Madison Lilley contributed 37 assists and five digs.

In the last home match of the season, the Big Blue Nation absolutely did their part to fill up Memorial Coliseum and give the Cats a massive home-field advantage:

Here was the pregame hype video:

Kentucky will take on the defending national champion Nebraska Cornhuskers, the team that knocked them out of the tournament last season, in the Sweet Sixteen next Friday, December 7.

We’ll miss the Volleyball Cats at Memorial the rest of the way, but we’re looking forward to meeting back up there to hang a championship banner here in a couple weeks.

Go Cats!

Kentucky men’s soccer falls to Maryland 1-0 in the Elite Eight

The Kentucky men’s soccer team’s historic run in the NCAA Tournament has come to an end.

After reaching the Elite Eight for the first time in program history, the Wildcats fell by a final score of 1-0 to Maryland, ending their season.

Maryland’s Sebastien Elney scored at the 28:44 mark in the first half, and despite Kentucky was unable to respond the rest of the way. With only two shots on goal, the Cats were unable to get much of anything going against a stout Terrapin defense.

3,228 fans were in attendance at The Bell to cheer on Kentucky, the first home loss of the season.

The Wildcats’ season ends with a final record of 19-2-1, the most victories in program history.

UK Hoops rolls past High Point, secures 71-49 win

@KentuckyWBB

After a slow offensive start, the Kentucky women’s basketball team finished with a decisive 71-49 victory over the High Point University Panthers. Maci Morris led all scorers, finishing with a season-high 22 points. Taylor Murray added 14 points and freshmen Rhyne Howard and Blair Green had 10 points each.

While the Wildcats had four players hit double-digit scoring, it was Kentucky’s defense that came out strong, especially in the second half, to win the game. UK held High Point to just 28.3 percent shooting while also forcing 19 turnovers. The Cats were able to convert these turnovers into 15 points.

KeKe McKinney was a major contributor on the defensive side of the ball, grabbing a season-high nine rebounds and recording three blocks in 24 minutes of play.

Kentucky outperformed High Point in every aspect of play – the Wildcats made a higher percent of their shots from the field and from behind-the-arc, they grabbed more rebounds, committed fewer turnovers, blocked more shots and sank more free throws. Overall, a successful day for Kentucky. The UK Hoops team is now 4-0 on the season.

The victory was extra special for senior point guard Taylor Murray, who was honored for joining the 1,000-point club during the team’s last game. She is the 34th player in school history to hit a four-digit point total.

And as if a win wasn’t enough, the Cats can now begin to look ahead to warmer weather. The team’s next three games will be played in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands, where they’ll take on South Florida, UCLA and North Carolina in the Paradise Jam. The action will begin on Thanksgiving Day at 1 p.m. when the Cats play South Florida.
