The 2010-11 men’s basketball schedule has been officially released.

The full schedule includes a trip to Hawaii for the Maui Invitational, which has a field of Oklahoma, Washington, Virginia, Wichita State, Connecticut, Chaminade and Michigan State, beginning Nov. 24. UK also plays at Louisville Dec. 31, creating the chance for a memorable New Years Eve for the state of Kentucky. UK finishes the season at Tennessee for the last game of the season.

Other notable games include games at North Carolina, vs. Notre Dame at a neutral site, and vs. Indiana.

The SEC schedule opens at Rupp against Auburn and includes a game at Florida that will be featured on ESPN College Gameday.

“This year’s schedule challenges us from game one and I hope it will prepare our young team for the battles we will face in March,” UK head coach John Calipari said in a news release. “Great job by John Robic and our athletic department in getting the schedule together. There should be lots for the Big Blue Nation to get excited over.”
