The team’s conference opener will be Saturday, January 5th against Alabama in Tuscaloosa. The home conference schedule includes February games against projected SEC contenders Tennessee and Auburn, as well as a March matchup against Tennessee in Knoxville.

The non-conference schedule includes a powerful lineup, including a regular season opener against Duke, a December matchup against North Carolina in Chicago and a home battle against national title favorite Kansas for the SEC/Big 12 Challenge.

UK will end their regular season at home against Florida for their only home game in March before the SEC Tournament in Nashville. After their Dec. 1 game against UNC Greensboro, the Cats will play no more than two consecutive games at home for the rest of the season.
