Huskies-Wildcats on ESPN2 at 4pm PT. Plus, 4 more NCAA games tonight! Discuss

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Washington Huskies women's team is playing the Kentucky Wildcats this afternoon at 4pm.  The game will be shown on ESPN2.

The Huskies, the #7 seed in the region, takes on the #3 seed Kentucky.  On Monday, the Lady Huskies behind 32 points of Kelsey Plum upset the #2 seeded Maryland Terrapins in College Park.  The Dawgs face another stiff home opponent as they are in Lexington, Kentucky facing the Wildcats.

Good news is that the Huskies' Mathilde Gilling is warming up and should play.  She had a knee injury that left her status uncertain.

At least one media site is picking the Huskies in this one.  Another bit of good news, despite the fact that junior Kelsey Plum is WNBA draft eligible, she has indicated she will be returning for her senior year.  Too soon?

In addition to the UW Women playing, there are four games in the men's bracket including Syracuse playing Gonzaga.

Feel free to discuss the ladies and gentlemen.
