UK’s Conference Opponents Announced

We now know UK’s Southeastern Conference opponents for the upcoming 2018-19 basketball season.

Beginning with the three permanent home-and-away opponents, Kentucky will get two games against Florida, Tennessee and Vanderbilt, as is tradition. Defending SEC co-champ Auburn and Mississippi State will join those three teams with two games against UK this year.

The Cats will also host Arkansas, LSU, South Carolina and Texas A&M in the friendly confines of Rupp Arena, but with no road game in return.

UK’s away games will come at Alabama, Georgia, Missouri and Ole Miss; in addition to Auburn, Mississippi State and the three permanent home-and-away opponents.

    SEC will be solid this year. I think Cats will lose 4 SEC games (and maybe only 2 out of conference in regular season), but that should be good enough to win league. Think they lose at UT, Florida and Auburn, and maybe another one in there. But think this team can be better than the 2015-16 Cats because of depth and overall more size. Pumped for the season.

    Really hope we sweep Florida. They embarrassed us in Gainesville last year.

    I was hoping to see Tom Crean in Rupp this year. Guess we’ll have to wait another year.

    This team will have 6-7 losses (minimum) going into the tourney. Schedule is brutal in the non conference.

    Well according to most major outlets and publications, Tennessee, Auburn & Mississippi State are in the “way-too-early Top 25.” And you know those pesky Gators and Vanderbilt are always a handful. I’m glad we get the opportunity to play the best teams (potentially) in the conference twice. With a LOADED non-conference schedule and now this SEC path, we should definitely be battle tested come March!
