Seniors Evelyn Akhator and Makayla Epps spoke about the emotions and expectations that put the 2016-2017 Wildcats as a four-seed in the NCAA tournament.

The women’s NCAA Tournament tips off Friday with 16 first-round games.

All of the television coverage Friday will take place on ESPN2.

Fans in Kentucky will be able to watch both games in Memorial Coliseum live and in their entirety.

Kentucky takes on Belmont at noon, and Western Kentucky plays Ohio State at about 2:30 p.m.

ESPN2 is offering a full weekend of women’s NCAA Tournament coverage, but that coverage is regionalized. Fans will see games in their home regions in their entirety, but the rest of the country will see “the most compelling action from multiple games,” which is also known as whip-around coverage.

Every tournament game is available online at WatchESPN.com.
