For the first time in over ten years, UK Hoops will play THREE regular season games in Rupp Arena: Tennessee on December 31, South Carolina on January 21 and LSU on February 4. The Tennessee and LSU games will be televised on the SEC Network, while the South Carolina game will be shown on ESPNU.
The Tennessee game on New Year’s Eve is part of a doubleheader with the men’s team, who will play Georgia at 6 p.m. Both games will be ticketed separately.
“We are very excited to be playing three games inside Rupp Arena this season,” UK head coach Matthew Mitchell said. “The atmosphere we’ve had in past games we’ve played there has been incredible and I know the Big Blue Nation will give us a great advantage again this year. There are few venues in the world with more history and tradition than Rupp Arena and I know our team will be excited to hit the floor.”
This will mark only the sixth time in program history and the first time since the 2007-08 season that the Wildcats have played three or more regular-season games inside Rupp Arena. Check out there complete, updated schedule below:
