Kentucky Will Play at Kansas This Season


Get out your frequent flyer miles because next season’s UK Basketball schedule is going to be quite a haul. The Cats have completed the marquee part of their slate with the announcement today that they will play at Kansas on January 30 as part of the SEC/Big 12 Challenge. The event is mixed right in the middle of conference play and will see UK head to Lawrence for the first time since Jared Carter was roaming the sidelines to play in what I believe is the best venue for college basketball in America. It is the marquee game of the Challenge and will surely be a Saturday night affair with all of college basketball watching.

The game joins the schedule that already included a game vs Duke (in Chicago), Ohio State (in Brooklyn), UCLA (in Los Angeles), Louisville (in Rupp), Arizona State (in Rupp) and South Florida (in Miami). It should be a heck of a ride for a young team and now also includes a chance for fans to go to one of the great venues in all of sports to watch the Cats spank on Bill Self once again.

Here is the rest of the Challenge:

    if the SEC wins this do you think people will still call it weak?

    Honestly I’m kinda sick of playing Kansas.

      I was thinking the exact same thing. I would rather play a team that we don’t get to play very often like one of the Oklahoma schools or Iowa St.

    How stupid to play KU at KU,why didn’t we play Texas Tech? I can’t believe UK agreed to this!

      It’s part of the Big 12/SEC Challenge, and Texas came to Rupp last year. Teams alternate home and away.

    They might beat us by 40 next year. Kansas will be really good.

      Got to agree with Rise. I can’t see us being favored in this at all.

    Why has no one mentioned just how dang sexy that girl is instead of whining about who we play?!?!

    And I WANT KANSAS – Yes would rather of gotten a different team (OU or OSU) but they needed marquee matchups for television – and UK vs KU generates all the ratings they need. Just be glad we are the torch of the SEC in BBAll

    Watched a good show about Kansas the other day. Dust in the Wind was one of their better ones and I hope all KU sees is our dust…
