UKWBB vs Tennessee

Kentucky Women's Basketball


SUNDAY, DEC. 31; 12 p.m.

For the first time in over a decade, the University of Kentucky women’s basketball team will play three regular-season games inside Rupp Arena, facing Tennessee on Dec. 31, South Carolina on Jan. 21 and LSU on Feb. 4 in the historic building.

“We are very excited to be playing three games inside Rupp Arena this season,” UK head coach Matthew Mitchell said. “The atmosphere we’ve had in past games we’ve played there has been incredible and I know the Big Blue Nation will give us a great advantage again this year. There are few venues in the world with more history and tradition than Rupp Arena and I know our team will be excited to hit the floor.”

This will mark only the sixth time in program history and the first time since the 2007-08 season that the Wildcats have played three or more regular-season games inside Rupp Arena. UK played five games at Rupp in 2007-08, four games in 2006-07 and 2005-06, three games in 2004-05 and three games in 1979-80. Kentucky played two regular-season games and one NCAA Tournament game in Rupp in 2015-16.
