The Kentucky Wildcats have another opponent set for the 2017-18 college hoops season.

According to CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein, UK will play host to the East Tennessee State Buccaneers next season.

ETSU finished the 2016-17 season with a 27-8 record and reached the NCAA Tournament under second-year head coach Steve Forbes. The previous season saw the Bucs go 24-12 and reach the Vegas 16 postseason tournament.

They’ll lose leading scorer T.J. Cromer from last season, but the Bucs do return second-leading scorer Desonta Bradford, who averaged 10.4 points, 4.4 rebounds and 3.9 assists per game.
