The Kentucky women's volleyball team held its home opener last night at Memorial Coliseum. It wasn't the start the Cats expected, falling to Cincinnati 25-20, 25-19 and 25-13. Kentucky hit .070 and committed 40 errors in the match. The last time the Cats lost a home opener was in 2002 against Alabama.
Tuesday's contest marked the first of 10 straight home matches. The Wildcats will host the Kentucky Classic on Friday and Saturday at Memorial. Friday's match against Western Kentucky begins at 7p.m.
If you have ever been in Memorial in the summer, you know it is a sauna. I would like to thank those responsible for the 4 new fans installed by Big Ass Fans. They really move some air and will be greatly appreciated by fans and the student-athletes using the facility.
