Kentucky Adds UAB and Marshall to 2020-21 Basketball Schedule

The University of Kentucky announced the addition of two teams to its 2020-21 basketball schedule. UAB will travel to Rupp Arena Dec. 6, followed by the Marshall Thundering Herd on Dec. 29.

The two new additions officially give the Wildcats 12 nonconference opponents in the upcoming season. Eight will be at home, three at a neutral site and one will be played against Louisville at the Yum! Center.

Kansas – Nov. 10 | United Center (Chicago) | Champions Classic 

          Detroit Mercy – Nov. 13 | Rupp Arena | Bluegrass Showcase 

          Hartford – Nov. 17 | Rupp Arena | Bluegrass Showcase 

          Georgia State – Nov. 20 | Rupp Arena  

         Richmond – Nov. 23 | Rupp Arena | Bluegrass Showcase 

         Georgia Tech – Nov. 27 | State Farm Arena (Atlanta) | Holiday Hoopsgiving 

         Cleveland State – Nov. 30 | Rupp Arena 

         UAB – Dec. 6 | Rupp Arena

        Notre Dame – Dec. 12 | Rupp Arena

         UCLA – Dec. 19 | TBA | CBS Sports Classic 

         Marshall – Dec. 29 | Rupp Arena

Kentucky is 12-0 against Marshall, last defeating the school from nearby Huntington, West Virginia 85-54 in 2012, a game where Ryan Harrow scored 23 points.

The Wildcats have a score to settle with the Blazers from Birmingham. The series is surprisingly tied at 3-3. Kentucky won last year’s meeting, avenging a 2007 loss at Freedom Hall and a heartbreaking second round exit from the 2004 NCAA Tournament. This year UAB will be coached by Andy Kennedy, the school’s second-leading scorer who called UK basketball games with Tom Hart on the SEC Network last season.

    I’m happy for AK, but I’m going to miss his calls on SEC Network.

    Well, the good news is there won’t be any fans in the stands. So, we won’t have to endure another season of awful home opponents.

    2020-21? Hell, we might as well as the Chicago Bulls, Montreal Expos & Tennessee Titans as well.

    A schedule like that is going to put Guy on the Corner out of business.
