Kentucky has now beaten a team from every state in America

How about this for a stat: Kentucky now owns the United States of America.

Following their 96-58 victory over North Dakota, the Kentucky Wildcats have now beaten a team from every state in America. Yep, all 50 states.

Before tonight, the Peace Garden State (yes, that’s their nickname) was the lone state from which the Wildcats had never played an opponent.

Now, there are only five states that Kentucky has played a team from just once: Delaware, Vermont, New Mexico, South Dakota, and North Dakota.

In more from United States/Kentucky Wildcats history, Tennessee is the state that Kentucky has played in more games, won more games, and lost more games than any other state. Yes, even their own state of Kentucky.

Also, Connecticut is now the only state with a winning record against Kentucky, edging the Cats 4-3 in the overall series. So if the Cats schedule Connecticut Technical Institute of Art and Connecticut State University Tech next season, you know why.

Take that, North Dakota.

    Where did you get these stats? I’d like to see the one showing uk has played more games in tn than ky – am i reading that right? At most uk plays 7 or 8 games a year in Tn…vandy, ut, 3 sect, 2 ncaat and maybe one more. They play 18 plus a year in ky. Maybe i misunderstood your comment…its late.

    But the others are interesting…

      It’s terribly worded at the least… it makes it sound as though Kentucky has played more games in the state of Tennessee than games against teams from Tennessee. It needs to be rewritten

      Rofl 18 games a year in Kentucky?!?! They only have, roughly, 30 regular season games. Half of those are conference games, in which not a single opponent is in the state. Vandy and Tenn make up an automatic 4 every year, and that’s not including if they meet in the conference tourney. Silly comment haha. I’d take this article as accurate.

    The post is stating that UK has played more games against teams from Tennessee (UT, Vandy, etc) than they have played teams FROM Kentucky (uL, WKU, etc)

    When I heard the Connecticut stat, my first thought was we need to schedule a two-game series with UConn, asap.
