UK Baseball misses the NCAA Tournament

Kentucky Baseball did not hear its name called during Monday’s NCAA Selection Show, thus ending its season in disappointing fashion.

The argument can be made that UK should be in with 16 wins against top-50 RPI teams, but the Cats’ 13-18 record in SEC play was ultimately the deciding factor in their postseason fate.

Injuries played a major role in UK’s losing record in league play. Coach Mingione made the case for his team following the first-round loss in the SEC Tournament last week; however, the selection committee saw things differently and put UK in its “Last Four Out.”

We’ll see UK again in its new stadium next fall.

      UK can never count on the NCAA to think or act logically in any sport.
