Kentucky men's soccer begins NCAA Tournament play tonight

The ninth-seeded University of Kentucky Men’s Soccer Team will begin its NCAA Tournament run in Lexington tonight. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. on ESPN+.

The Wildcats (14-1-4) will host Santa Clara (12-1-4) tonight at the Wendell and Vickie Bell Soccer Complex. Tho

Though this is Kentucky’s first game of the tournament, it’s actually the second round. The ‘Cats earned an automatic bid after defeating Florida International University to win the Conference USA Tournament last weekend, giving them a first-round bye and a spot in tonight’s game. They had played FIU earlier in the season and tied before the win last weekend.
