Basketball season is just around the corner for Kentucky. But one ESPN analyst has already made his predictions for how the Kentucky Wildcats will do in their biggest games.
And Kentucky fans may not like the results.
ESPN‘s Jeff Goodman ranked the top 15 college basketball games of the 2016-17 season. Naturally, Kentucky was slated to be play in some of them. Goodman circled the Louisville, Kansas, North Carolina and Michigan State games as the biggest that Kentucky will play in.
Goodman has the Wildcats splitting the four games, losing the Louisville and North Carolina games and winning the Michigan State contests. Kentucky plays at Louisville on Dec. 21, against Michigan State in the Champions Classic on Nov. 15 and against North Carolina in Las Vegas on Dec. 17, at Louisville on Dec. 21, Kansas at home on Jan. 28.
The Wildcats knocked off Louisville when the two teams met last year, but fell to Kansas when the two teams met in Lawrence, Kan. The Wildcats begin their season on Nov. 11 when they take on Canisius at home. Tip is scheduled for 7 p.m.
