The Kentucky Wildcats are on the verge of making history. Thursday night the UK volleyball team took down Washington 3-1 (25-18, 23-25, 25-23, 25-17) to punch their ticket to the National Championship Game, a first in program history. They will try to become the first SEC team to ever win a volleyball title Saturday night against Texas, three-time champs from the Big 12.
Unscathed until Thursday night’s match, the Cats dropped the second set after a challenge shifted the momentum. Kentucky recaptured it with incredible defense, led by 17 digs from libero Gabby Curry and 14 digs from Madison Lilley. Ahzani Tealer cleaned up from the middle, recording 19 kills on just 26 swings.
The Cats are rocking and rolling. Relive all of the best moments before Craig Skinner’s team tussles with Texas Saturday at 8 pm ET on ESPN2.
