UK Fans of the Day Want Notes from Matthew Mitchell’s Press Conference

Matthew Mitchell and the ladies are headed up to Bridgeport, Connecticut for the Women’s Sweet Sixteen, but before they left, Mitchell met with the media to preview Saturday’s game against sixth-seeded Delaware. Here are a few brief notes:

— Mitchell said he feels a “burning desire” to get this year’s Final Four after losing to UConn in the Elite Eight last season. If the Cats beat Delaware, they’ll likely meet UConn in the Elite Eight again. Could there be a more fitting path for this group?

— Fortunately, the stomach virus that plagued the team in the second round seems to have run its course. Mitchell said there are no lingering effects and the team looks to be in the clear.

— Now, all they have to do is win, which Mitchell says is just plain difficult in the NCAA Tournament: “It’s just hard to win games now. It’s hard to win any in the NCAA Tournament.”

— Regardless, the team is ready for the opportunity to play in the Sweet Sixteen. Don’t believe me? Watch this compilation of clips of their NCAA Tournament run so far, thanks to KyWildcatsTV:

Matthew Mitchell doing the C-A-T-S chant and yelling about swag at the :59 mark is priceless.

    Best of both worlds: get to watch the UK Hoops team play in an NCAA tournament game, and watch Elena Della Donne play at the same time.
