UK confirms Las Vegas as site of 2019 "destination" double-header

The University of Kentucky men’s basketball program confirmed it will play two games in Las Vegas in 2019-2020.

It is the “destination spot” John Calipari teased two weeks ago.

The Cats will play Ohio State in the CBS Sports Classic double-header on Saturday, December 21. But first they will play Utah on Wednesday, December 18, in the same arena. It’s a pretty genius move by UK’s genius coach.

“We are always trying to put together a schedule that our fans will enjoy while preparing us to be at our best at the end of the season,” Calipari said. “One of the things I hear most about from our fans is they enjoy traveling with us and staying at a destination location for multiple games. That was our goal in scheduling this game with Utah. It gives us a great opponent for our fans at home next season, and then in 2019, our fans can spend a week with us at one of our favorite stops over the last few years. I still get people who come up to me and tell me about how much fun they had in 2016 when we played North Carolina.”

See you there.

    That’s funny because Matt swore not Vegas and even got onto Ryan or a caller for suggesting it .
