The Kentucky women’s basketball team is set to take on the Indiana Hoosiers this season, a border-rival matchup that has been on pause since 2006.
The school announced the addition to the schedule this afternoon, with the matchup set to take place at Memorial Coliseum on Dec. 6 at 4 p.m. ET on ESPNU.
Kentucky comes in ranked 11th in the AP Preseason Top 25, while Indiana is No. 16 in the listing. Big Ten coaches and league media picked the Hoosiers as the preseason favorites for the 2021 Big Ten Championship after finishing 24-8 last season.
According to UK Athletics, this will be the 26th all-time meeting between Kentucky and Indiana in women’s basketball with the Wildcats holding a 13-12 advantage in the series. The first meeting was in 1974 and followed with the two schools meeting twice in 1976 and annually from 1978-1990. The series picked back up in 1993 and lasted five years to 1997. The last meeting was in November 2006 in Lexington. Indiana has won six straight games against the Wildcats.
