Kentucky has played both Georgetown College and Kentucky State before. The Cats are 2-0 in exhibition games vs. Georgetown College with the most recent meeting taking place Nov. 9, 2014. Kentucky beat Kentucky State in their lone exhibition meeting on Nov. 6, 2015 and played them once in the regular season back in Dec. 15, 2001, winning 118-63.

Of course, Georgetown College is coming off its third NAIA Division I national championship last season. The Tigers have appeared in three NAIA national championship games under current head coach and two-time NAIA Coach of the Year Chris Briggs, who is a former student manager of the Wildcat program from 2001-04 and a graduate assistant from 2004-06.

Go Cats. Go in-state exhibitions.

    Is it just me or does it seem like we get the best team in the classic most years?

    On a side note Kentucky will be playing itself Nov 1st because until the early 1900 we were known as KST and Transylvania was known as Kentucky University.

      They simply rotate the games each year, please know that before you start your the NCAA hates us garbage. And MSU was the best team last year in that Classic, not the team we played. Actually the team we played is the one all on here say how bad they were, lucky to get past the 2nd round. They were also much younger and inexperienced than us and we had a huge crowd advantage. We were right in that game till the tip.

      Who said the NCAA hates us? I’ve only said they love the state of NC. Many believed Duke the best last year and MST this year so my point was valid. Ranking aside Kansas was believed to be the best in 2017.

    GTown might hang a few points on ‘em. There’s a reason Cal doesn’t play Murray St or GTown
