Is softball in or out?

For a program that has been to the NCAA Tournament just once and to the Southeastern Conference Tournament only twice, the Kentucky softball team knows not to take the postseason for granted.

As the team enters its third SEC Tournament on Thursday, it knows it isn't firmly in the NCAA Tournament.

Last year, in a similar position as the No. 6 seed in the league tournament, UK cemented itself in the Big Dance with a huge victory over No. 3 seed and seventh-ranked Georgia. Now, as a No. 6 seed again, the Cats are set to take on No. 3 seed LSU.

If the Cats can't pull off a similar win and make it to the tournament semifinals, should they still feel safely in the 64-team NCAA Tournament?

As of the May 4 rankings, UK boasts an RPI of 30, sixth best in the SEC. With four wins over top-10 teams and 30 wins already in the books, chances are the team is probably in.

Having said that, a win over top-15 LSU on Thursday at noon would go a long way in calming some anxious feelings on Selection Sunday.
