In a game that saw the Kentucky bench sanitized and a jersey changed after a spell of vomiting, Matthew Mitchell and the ladies of the UK Hoops squad took down Dayton 84-70 to advance to the Sweet 16. Adia Mathies was absolutely amazing tonight in Queens, NY, dropping 34 points. Samarie Walker grabbed 7 rebounds and unloaded approximately one gallon of puke into the trashcan.
Absolutely great to see this team take the next step towards a Final Four appearance. Also, I am ecstatic to have someone to cheer for other than Florida Gulf Coast. The womens team plays Delaware on March 30th next in the Sweet 16. Matt and Drew will be heading to Bridgeport, CT for the very first time to hopefully catch another UK Hoops victory.
