Get our your calendars, BBN: the 2016-2017 non-conference schedule is complete. Read it and weep for joy that basketball is on the horizon once again.
Eight of this year’s non-conference foes made it to the postseason last year and four teams finished with a top 25 RPI ranking. The schedule features a stable of blue bloods, including Michigan State, UCLA, North Carolina, Kansas, and Louisville, the latter of which will host the Cats in their first true road game at the Yum! Center on December 21, the first time since 2006-2007 the two have met before Christmas. Kentucky will criss-cross the country, traveling to New York twice, the Bahamas, and Las Vegas before returning to the Bluegrass to take on Louisville and prepare for conference play.
Times and TV information will be released at a later date.
