2016-17 Kentucky Basketball Schedule

The 2016-17 Kentucky men’s basketball schedule is coming together. The school has confirmed 11 of the non-conference opponents for the upcoming basketball season, with nine of those games including confirmed dates to include the two exhibition games. Coach Cal has loaded up the competition for yet another highly ranked recruiting class with four opponents being expected to be in the preseason top-15 when the first AP college basketball rankings come out (UL, UNC, UCLA, and MSU). The remainder of the Wildcat’s basketball schedule is expected to be released later in the summer once the SEC finalizes the regular season schedule for all of the teams which typically occurs in the weeks after the NBA Draft occurs. As we have updates, we will revise the Wildcat’s schedule for you to enjoy.

Kentucky Basketball Schedule Notes

A couple of notes regarding the tentative schedule for Kentucky basketball. The date for the Louisville game is what is expected to be finalized by the schools, but is unofficial at the time of this writing. The game against Michigan State is part of the Champion’s Classic. When the Cats travel to Brooklyn to play Hofstra, it will be part of the 2016 Brooklyn Hoops Winter Festival, and the game against Kansas is part of the Big 12/SEC Challenge.
