LEXINGTON-Alumni: UK def WKU 4-0 in the Alumni Gym
The University of Kentucky and Western Kentucky University squared off on their opening matches on Saturday September 15th. Between UK and WKU both teams fielded a combined 30 veterans to start the opening match. Both team started to shake of the rust from the summer and began a slow paced first half. UK led going into the break 1-0 lead. Both teams came out in the second half with something to prove and exhibited a much faster pace and ended the match with UK winning 4-0. On two separate points WKU forced UK down to a 10 second shot-clock only to be denied the point.
The several hundred people in attendance were given a scare just minutes into the game as UK’s Jeffery DeWitt (#22) suffered a severe concussion while failing to properly land from a dodge in midair. The injury required multiple stitches and an overnight stay at the hospital. We are glad to report that Jeffrey DeWitt is looking to make a good recovery in the upcoming months.
