The NCAA Tournament has been reduced to 48 teams for 2020-21 and will be bubbled in Omaha, Nebraska.

Kentucky will play its first match of the tournament on Thursday, April 15 at 7 pm ET against the winner of UNLV vs. Illinois State. The match will be shown on ESPN3 and the ESPN app.

The seed is the highest in program history, surpassing its No. 4 seed from 2017. Kentucky is one of three teams from the SEC making the field of 48, joining Florida and Mizzou.
