March Madness Proves Kentucky Is Officially a Soccer School Now

The Kentucky Wildcats men’s and women’s basketball programs had the craziest March imaginable.

The Kentucky Wildcats men’s and women’s basketball programs are expected to have a longer retention period in the 2022 NCAA Tournaments. That happened, as evidenced last Thursday, when the Kentucky men’s team lost to Saint Peter’s in the first roundbecame the 2nd seed who lost to the 15th seed.

Things didn’t get any better on Saturday. The women’s team, which placed 6th in the Bridgeport area, lost to the 11th Princeton Tigers in Round 64, ending Rhyne Hoard’s legendary career and sending the SEC Tournament champion home sooner than anyone thought. That’s right, both basketball teams were eliminated in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

Kentucky Wildcats Men’s and Women’s Teams Knocked Out in First Round of NCAA Tournament

Not quite what Kentucky fans were hoping for, especially after the football team beat the Iowa Hawkeyes 20-17 to win the Citrus Bowl to start 2022.

Kentucky fans, look away because the school has made some unfortunate history. It was the first time that both the boys and girls basketball teams of a school were eliminated in the first round of the NCAA Tournament by double-digit seeds since Florida in 2002.

Dre’una Edwards played 32 minutes from the bench, securing a brace with 16 points (6 for 15 from the field) and scoring 12 rebounds.

Princeton is led by Abby Myers, who leads with 29 points (9 for 21 from the field, 9 for 11 from the free throw). Myers also scored five rebounds, one assist and one steal. This huge win means a lot to the Princeton women’s basketball program, as it is its second win ever.

As for the Wildcats basketball programs, they will be preparing for the next season much sooner than expected after their exit in the first round.
