AUDIO: Oregon Softball Preps for Kentucky in Super Regionals, Again

Mike White is now a perfect 27-0 in regional rounds as Oregon softball’s head coach and the No. 1 Ducks are onto the NCAA Tournament Super Regional Round for the ninth-straight year. Just like a season ago, the Ducks host the Kentucky Wildcats, the tournament’s 16th-overall seed. Last year, the Ducks swept Kentucky 2-0 in the Super Regionals but needed a come-from behind win to do it. Before the team’s Tuesday afternoon practice, members of the Ducks met with and spoke to the media to preview the series, which begins at Thursday at 6:00 p.m., continues Friday at 8:00 p.m. and ends on Saturday at 6:00 p.m., if necessary. All games will be broadcast on 88.1 FM. Below are the full interviews.
