Kentucky will play Providence in Brooklyn, N.Y., on Dec. 1, UK announced Thursday. Tickets for that game go on sale Friday, beginning at 10 a.m.
UK and Providence agreed to a two-game series. The first game will be played in the Barclays Center next season. The second game will be in Rupp Arena during the 2014-15 season.
“We are excited to return to the Barclays Center next year to play Providence,” UK Coach John Calipari said in a news release. “Last year’s game against Maryland was an NCAA Tournament environment in November. It’s a great event, a great building and a great city. We’re looking forward to being back in Brooklyn.”
Kentucky opened the 2012-13 season in the Barclays Center, beating Maryland 72-69.
