This day in UK History in 2008 Tayshuan Prince brought home a gold medal with US Men’s Basketball National Team. Prince became the eleventh UK player or coach to win Olympic gold. The US beat Spain 118-107 in the gold medal match.
“It’s a different feeling when you represent your country, having the anthem being played at the end when you’re standing on the stage,” said Prince. “Those types of things don’t happen in the NBA when you win a championship.”
The UK Women’s Soccer began the season last night at Washington, but sadly they did not come away with a win. The Cats fell 4-1 to the Huskies.
Washington got three goals in the first half. The Huskies had were up 2-0 in the 21st minute when Arin Gilliland scored the first goal of the season for the Cats. Washington led 3-1 at the half.
At the half, UK tied Washington in shots at 7, and UK led the half 2-1 on corner kicks. UK Keeper Braun had one save in the first half.
In the 69th minute, Washington would score again to make it 4-1.
Kentucky will play again tomorrow at 3 pm against Seattle University. The match will be played at Championships Field on the campus of Seattle University.
The New CWS is going to open in the fall of 2015, but you can get a glimpse into the future today with the Virtual Venue. You can go to any part of the stadium and see what the view will look like from that seat. Check it out here.
The UK Volleyball team traveled to China over the summer, and KYWildcatTV’s feature on it is awesome. It sounded like an awesome time for the Cats, and I encourage you to watch it.
If you don’t have time to watch the whole feature here is the trailer:
The UK Women’s Soccer team starts their season tonight at Washington at 10 pm. To get ready for the game watch highlights from some of UK’s wins last year.
