UK women face Dayton Tuesday

NEW YORK (AP) - Dayton shouldn't be intimidated by Kentucky.

After all the two teams played a closed scrimmage at Kentucky in the preseason and the Flyers hung tough with the second-seeded Wildcats.

Yet that game was in October and both teams have improved since then. They will play Tuesday night in the second round of the women's NCAA tournament with a trip to the Bridgeport Regional semifinals on the line.

The winner will face either Delaware or North Carolina on Saturday in the women's NCAA tournament.

Both coaches downplayed the early season meeting.

Still it could give the young seventh-seeded Flyers confidence since the two schools haven't met in the regular season since 1997.
