The Kentucky Women’s Basketball team will play at Rupp Arena this season after all.
UK Athletics just announced it is moving the women’s home games vs. Alabama (Jan. 28) and Tennessee (Feb. 11) to Rupp to help relieve a crowded Memorial Coliseum event schedule now that the gymnastics and volleyball teams are set to begin their seasons. The Alabama game on Jan. 28 will tip off at 6:30 p.m. and air on SEC Network, while the Tennessee game on Feb. 11 will tip off at 7 p.m. and stream on SEC Network+ and WatchESPN.
Attendance will still be limited to 15% of normal arena capacity. Ticket information will be announced soon, along with information on parking, entry, etc. The women’s team has played at least one game at Rupp each of the last ten years and is 28-19 all-time in the venue.
