The 2017-18 Wildcats will play an exciting 16-game home schedule at historic Memorial Coliseum, including one conference game at Rupp Arena. Kentucky’s home slate is highlighted by games against in-state rival Louisville, Pac-12 power Cal and Southeastern Conference battles against Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, LSU, Tennessee, South Carolina, Arkansas and Mississippi State.
Kentucky has ranked top 25 nationally and top four in the SEC in average attendance 14 straight seasons. Last season, the Wildcats averaged 5,213 fans per home game and posted an impressive 16-4 record at home.
UK is entering its 11th season under head coach Matthew Mitchell, who has guided the Wildcats to unprecedented heights during his tenure. Kentucky finished last season with 22 wins, earning its 18th 20-win season, including its eighth straight under Mitchell, which is a program record. The solid season led the Wildcats to another school record as UK played in the NCAA Tournament for the eighth straight season and hosted the first and second rounds of the event for the fourth straight year.
The strong finish led UK to a No. 18 final ranking in The Associated Press Top 25 and a No. 25 final ranking in the USA Today/Coaches Top 25, the eighth-straight season the Wildcats have been inside the top 25 of both final listings. UK started its season ranked inside the top 20 of both polls for the seventh straight year.
The Wildcats return nine of 11 eligible players for next season and will add Stony Brook transfer and 2016 America East Conference Rookie of the Year Ogechi Anyagaligbo, who practiced with the team last season.
