Kentucky to play UNC Greensboro next season

We have another UK basketball game for you to add to your calendar.

Kentucky will play the Spartans of UNC Greensboro in Rupp Arena on Saturday, December 1, 2018.

The Spartans went 27-7 and 15-3 in the Southern Conference in 2017-18 under head coach Wes Miller, who is set to coach the team for a seventh season. UNCG won the Southern Conference crown a year ago and reached the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2001, but fell in the first round to Gonzaga in Boise. (We were at that game.)

UNCG returns four of its top five scorers from a year ago and will likely be picked to repeat in the Southern Conference.


Its addition to UK’s schedule continues Calipari’s theme of playing conference champs.

    As a Greensboro resident, partial UNCG season ticket holder and spouse of a UNCG alum of course I’ll be in Rupp on Dec 1. Of course, I’ll be there as part of BBN and it’s gonna be really fun watching two teams that I know well hoop it up – even if we already know the Cats will not have much trouble with the Spartans.
