UK Reportedly Agrees to Two Games with Utah

16 May 2018

ESPN 700 radio in Salt Lake City is reporting that Kentucky has agreed to a two-game series with Utah.

Utah will play the Wildcats at Rupp Arena in Lexington in 2018, but Kentucky will not be coming to the Huntsman Center in return.

Then the Runnin' Utes will meet Kentucky at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas the following year.

A Utah basketball spokesman said an official announcement will be made by the school soon. Along with its impending visit to Lexington, the Runnin' Utes are now scheduled to face Missouri on the road, Tulsa at home, rival BYU in the Beehive Classic and participate in the 2018 Wooden Legacy tournament in Anaheim, Calif., scheduled for November 22, 23 and 25. The Utes are joined in that field by Fresno State, Grand Canyon, Hawaii, LaSalle, Miami, Northwestern and Seton Hall.

The second annual Beehive Classic at Vivint Arena pits Utah against BYU on December 8.

The Utes finished this past season with a record of 23-12, advancing to the NIT championship agme.
