Kentucky Wildcats and Gonzaga Bulldogs Announced Home and Home Men’s Basketball Series Starting This Year

Gonzaga and Kentucky have approved the home and home men’s college basketball series starting with the Wildcats traveling to Spokane in November.

The matches were announced in a conversation between coaches John Calipari and Mark Vue during the Kentucky Open and telethon training to raise funds for flood victims in eastern Kentucky Tuesday night.

“He wants to schedule a match, but everything has to be on his terms,” ​​Calipari told the Rob Arena fans with little to no video call. “I thought we were Kentucky.”

Few replied, “First of all, we were fine.” “We were looking pretty good, and I just said, ‘Do you want to play? “And I’m like, yeah I’m good at playing.”

“And what did you say?” Calipari rose.

“I said it had to be in Spokane,” Little said.

After more banter between the coaches, they got down to the details.

“November 20 is what’s going to be great,” said little. “That suits us. How about you?”

“Let me ask you this,” Calipari replied, “maybe that’s crazy.” “Are you going back here the next year or are you just going to say it’s a one game shot in Spokane?”

“We will definitely be back,” Few said. “We’ve never played at the Robb Arena, and it would be great.”

The two programs only ran once, in the 2002 Maui Invitational. Kentucky won that game 80-72.

The November 20 competition will be the best non-conference game of the season. Both teams are ranked in the top five pre-season, with Gonzaga coming in second and Kentucky scoring fourth in ESPN’s latest Way-Too-Early Top 25. It will also feature two of the nation’s top players, who will face All-American Drew Timme twice, National Player of the Year Oscar Chiboy.

Gonzaga exits a 28-4 season that ended in a loss at Sweet 16. Kentucky was stunned in the first round by 15-seeded St. Peter.
