With all the preseason tournaments starting right now, it makes me question if I enjoy Kentucky’s schedule more the way it is now or if they entered a notable tournament. It’s been since the 2011-12 season when Kentucky played in the Hall of Fame Classic against Penn State and Old Dominion since its played in an elimination style preseason tournament. A year before that the Wildcats played in the Maui Invitational, losing in the finals to UConn.
Personally, I’d love to see Kentucky get rid of some of these games against the likes of South Florida, NJIT and Albany and move to a tournament one out of every three years. It gives Wildcats fans a reason to travel (give us the Battle 4 Atlantis) and prepares Kentucky for NCAA Tournament play at the same time.
So, what do you guys think? Want to see more preseason tournaments for Kentucky or leave the schedule alone? If so, what tournaments?
