Kentucky basketball is expected to play some of the best competition year in and year out thanks to the talent it brings in every year. Coach John Calipari doesn't shy away from the challenge and this year's squad will certainly have one of those ahead of them with the schedule that was just released for the non-conference games.
The Wildcats released mini-videos for each cluster of games and you can catch those videos on their Instagram. The Kansas game is part of the SEC/Big 12 Challenge that's now an annual tradition and the game against Michigan State will take place in New York for the Champions Classic at a sweet neutral site for the freshmen to get accustomed to --- Madison Square Garden.
While the home games aren't that great, the Wildcats do get to fellow blue blood Kansas and a solidly underrated UCLA squad that could give this UK fits.
