So much is at stake here for the Kentucky Wildcats as they have to win two games to advance to the super regionals. Kentucky was off to a great start as they defeated Northwestern in the first game of the regional to advance to the winner’s bracket, they were off to a good start in the first game against Notre Dame but the Fighting Irish would dominate and win sending the Cats to the elimination game, where they would play Northwestern again and would defeat the Wildcats a second time to get where they are now.
