Kentucky Basketball’s 2017-18 SEC Opponents Released

We do not know exactly when they will play, but we now know who Kentucky will play in this year’s SEC schedule.  The league released the matchups for each team and here’s who the Wildcats will face in the second half of the 2017-18 season.

As usual, the Cats will play Florida, Tennessee and Vanderbilt twice.  Texas A&M and Missouri earn the honor to play Kentucky twice as UK’s non-traditional SEC opponents.

The league decided to pit the Cats against the nation’s No. 1 player Michael Porter Jr. twice, rather than against Avery Johnson’s loaded Alabama team featuring McDonald’s All-American point guard Collin Sexton and former Cal recruit John Petty.

    Well at least we can say congrats to John Petty of Alabama for actually getting to play a game in Rupp now.

      Makes me think that’s two wins for the Cats.

      Yep, they will be okay but Alabama is better. Florida is really good. A&M will be solid too. SEC looks pretty damn strong all of a sudden.
