    By Larry Vaught

    It was a bit ironic that Washington was the team that ended Kentucky's season by beating the UK women in Rupp Arena in the NCAA Tournament regional semifinals last week.
    Washington coach Mike Neighbors not only dates UK fan Amy Ratliff of Lexington, but he knew plenty about UK junior guard Makayla Epps and how good she is.
