LEXINGTON, Ky. – The No. 2 Kentucky men’s soccer team (11-0-5, 5-0-3 Sun Belt) will begin its postseason at the Sun Belt Conference Tournament on Sunday facing South Carolina (5-7-4, 1-4-3 Sun Belt) at the Wendell & Vickie Bell Soccer Complex for a 7 p.m. EST match.
The defending Sun Belt Conference Regular Season Champions will host a quarterfinal and semifinal round with West Virginia University and Coastal Carolina starting the day with a 3 p.m. EST kickoff followed by Kentucky and South Carolina. The winners of each match will go head-to-head on Wednesday.
