Kentucky basketball released its preseason schedule Wednesday morning, and we’re now officially 156 days from Wildcats season.
Big Blue Madness, the program’s season-opening practice/major recruiting event, will begin at 7 p.m. ET on Fri., Oct. 14, with SEC Network broadcasting the typically sold-out event.
One week later, the annual Blue-White Scrimmage will also be broadcasted on SEC Network (Oct. 21, 7 p.m. ET).
Kentucky’s two-game exhibition season will include games against coach John Calipari’s alma mater Clarion (Oct. 30 at 7 p.m. ET) and in-state school Asbury (Nov. 6 at 7 p.m. ET). Both events will be broadcast live on SEC Network.
Calipari played point guard for Clarion (Pa.) from 1980-1982. The Golden Eagles also played an exhibition game at Rupp Arena before the 2009 season.
The Wildcats coach will address the media this afternoon (2 p.m. ET), and SEC Country will bring you the most important updates.
