Kentucky’s 2018-19 basketball schedule is becoming clearer.
After John Calipari teased a pair of destination games two weeks ago, this morning we discovered Kentucky will play Utah in a two-game series, beginning this year at Rupp Arena. Now that the Utes are on the schedule, here’s an unofficial look at who the Cats will play when in 2018-19.
|The Bahamas||Paradise Island||Atlantis||August 8-12|
|Big Blue Madness||Lexington||Rupp Arena||TBD
|Blue/White Game||Lexington||Rupp Arena||TBD
|Duke||Indianpolis||Bankers Life Fieldhouse (Champions Classic)||November 6|
|Monmouth||Lexington||Rupp Arena||November 28|
|UNC-Greensboro||Lexington||Rupp Arena||December 1|
|Seton Hall||New York City||Madison Square Garden (Citi Hoops Classic)||December 8|
|North Carolina||Chicago||United Center (CBS Sports Classic)||December 22|
|Louisville||Louisville||KFC Yum! Center||TBD|
|Big 12 Opponent||Lexington||Rupp Arena||SEC/Big 12 Challenge TBD|
It’s not yet official, but Big Blue Madness has been held during the Kentucky football Bye Week the last three years; that probably will not change next season. This fall’s Bye Week is October 12.
That should paint a clearer picture, but you’ll have to wait until later this summer to see the schedule in its entirety.
