Kentucky began its NCAA Tournament run on Thursday and Coach Cal's daughters are bracing for impact.

Kentucky held off Davidson in the first round of the NCAA Tournament on Thursday, despite not connecting on a three-pointer for the first time since the 1988 season. The Wildcats were outscored 33-0 from three, yet still, amazingly, prevailed. Kevin Knox scored 25 points on 8-of-16 shooting for the Wildcats.

After the game, both of Coach Cal's daughters took to Twitter to essentially exhale. Megan Calipari joked that she actually doesn't like March because it's too nerve wracking. Her sister Erin had a pro tip for her.

Remember too - that it isn't just their father, John, who is part of the Kentucky program. Brad Calipari, their brother, plays for the Wildcats too.

Kentucky, with the win, will move on to play either Arizona or Buffalo in the second round. The Wildcats are now 25-10 on the season.

That game will come Saturday, though the time has yet to be determined.
