  • No. 17 Kentucky Earns 15th Appearance in NCAA Tournament

    LEXINGTON, Ky. – The No. 17 University of Kentucky women's basketball team has been selected as an at-large team in the 2019 NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament, earning the Wildcats' ninth appearance in the last 10 seasons in the event. Sixth-seeded Kentucky (24-7) will face 11th-seeded Princeton (22-9) in the first round on Saturday inside Reynolds Coliseum in Raleigh, N.C. The game will air live on ESPN2 (regionalization applied) at 11 a.m. ET.

    For the first time since 2013, the Wildcats will travel for the first and second rounds after hosting each of the last four appearances. NC State will play as the host of the first- and second- round games which will be held Saturday and Monday. The other first-round matchup in Raleigh features third-seeded NC State against 14th-seeded Maine at 1 p.m. ET on ESPN2. Ticket information will be available at gopack.com.

    The Wildcats earned a No. 6 seed in the event, marking the second time the Wildcats have been a No. 6 seed in the NCAA Tournament. This is the first time since 2006 that UK has not earned a top-four seed in the event. The last time UK held a No. 6 seed was in the 1999 tournament when it played in Los Angeles defeating Nebraska 98-92 in the first round before falling to UCLA in the second round.

    Kentucky is 20-14 all-time in the NCAA Tournament, including a 16-8 record under Mitchell. The best finishes for UK came in 2013, 2012, 2010 and 1982 when the Wildcats fell one win shy of the Final Four. This is Kentucky's 15th all-time appearance in the NCAA Tournament and first since hosting the first and second rounds in 2016-17. The Wildcats are 11-3 all-time in first-round games and are 8-0 under Mitchell in opening round games.

    The Wildcats enter the event with a 24-7 record and ranked 17th in both the Associated Press Top 25 and USA Today/Coaches Top 25. Kentucky went 11-5 in conference play to earn the No. 4 seed in the 2019 Southeastern Conference Tournament, the 10th time under Mitchell that UK has finished top four in the league.
