The 2022-23 Kentucky Wildcats basketball schedule continues to come into focus.
Coming into today, we already knew most of the non-conference games and all of the SEC opponents.
Now, the SEC has announced the full league schedule.
In addition to its annual home-and-away opponents of the Florida Gators, Tennessee Volunteers and Vanderbilt Commodores, Kentucky will also face the Arkansas Razorbacks and Georgia Bulldogs twice during the 2022-23 season.
Kentucky opens SEC play December 28th at home vs. the Missouri Tigers. The regular-season finale will be March 4th on the road vs. the Razorbacks.
In addition, the 2022 Champions Classic times have been confirmed, as Kentucky will face Michigan State at 7 pm ET on November 15th, followed by Duke Blue Devils vs. Kansas Jayhawks as the late game. So maybe we’ll all finally get to bed before 1 am that night.
