Thunder Herd?

Nicely done, Illini!!! Respect for the extra inning guts!

Kentucky (seeded, #14) is already up on DePaul. It's definitely tournament time!

Great win, Watched the entire game---what a fantastic pitching performance by both starters. Some clutch defense on both sides...Very glad Illinois had the last at bat. Now go get revenge on those Wildcats.

Ladies not on tv, but lost 1-0 (3 hits for each team) in a heartbreaker. Great season, Illini

Regionals are double elimination so they get a chance to keep going, right?

Wow, that close to nipping Kentucky and putting themselves in the driver's seat for the regional? Heartbreaking is right enough.

I suppose that they've got to win three in a row now to advance. Go Illini!

Sorry, I forgot about double elimination since I was just watching updates, not watching on TV. Anybody know if the first game is on tv tomorrow?

Haven't seen anything indicated as of yet, but even if it's not, you can still watch it on ESPN3.

Illini softball loses 4-2 to Kentucky and has been eliminated. They rallied a bit in the 7th but it wasn't enough.

Kentucky moves on to the Super Regional where they will likely face Oregon in Eugene.
