With Kentucky's NCAA Tournament opener against Washington State just two days away, women's soccer head coach Jon Lipsitz spoke in the media room at Memorial Coliseum. It was the first time he had spoken there since his introductory press conference three years ago.
"It's nice to remember that," Lipsitz said. "It's been a climb ever since then and it's been a lot of hard work by some wonderful people, the players and the staff, and a lot of support by everybody that works with us in the administration that got us to where I'm sitting back in this chair."
Hosting a tournament game for the first time since 1999, the Wildcats are working hard for Saturday's game.
"We're just starting again," Lipsitz said. "We're not where we want to be in the long run but we're where we want to be today. We've been working very hard this week training very hard for a very good Washington State team."
We will have a story later this afternoon or tomorrow morning previewing this weekend's game, but in the mean time enjoy this video of Lipsitz talking about a match many are calling "the most evenly matched first round game" according to Lipsitz.
