Kentucky Sports Radio

University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Game times/TV info added to Kentucky Basketball’s 2017-18 Schedule


Break out your calendar because the SEC just released game times and broadcast information for the 2017-18 basketball season.

Not surprisingly, every single regular season game Kentucky will play this season will be aired on national television. Also not surprising: by my count, seven games will start at 9 p.m. or later, so stock up on coffee.

One major item of note: Kentucky’s conference opener vs. Georgia in Rupp Arena on December 31 will start at 6 p.m. on ESPN. That leaves you plenty of time to go watch the ball drop later that night.

Here’s the 2017-18 schedule, with a few tip times still up in the air:
