While men’s basketball had their day yesterday, the women’s team learned their fate tonight.

The Cats have drawn a four-seed in the Lexington region and will stay at home to play through potentially the Elite Eight.

Kentucky will play No. 13 Belmont on Friday inside Memorial Coliseum at noon on ESPN2. If the Cats advance through the first round, they will play either N0.5 Ohio State or No. 12 Western Kentucky. Both teams have former Cats on them with Linnae Harper of Ohio State, who left before the beginning of last season, and Kyvin Goodin-Rogers of Western Kentucky, who left after the start of last season.

Staying put in Lexington means Makayla Epps could play four more games in the Commonwealth, which is good news for the senior.

Notre Dame earned the top seed in the bracket, with Stanford and Texas behind them. The other one seeds are UConn, South Carolina and Baylor.

Stay tuned for more women’s basketball tournament coverage this week.

    Wow tough draw, Ohio St was top 10 most of the year and now we may have to face them in round 2 and the reward if we beat them is ND……..
    Good luck to the ladies, have been playing well so hope they can make a nice run and sweep these basically home games.
