Wildcats Set for Date with Gonzaga in Seattle in 2024

LEXINGTON, Ky. – The third installment of a six-year series between Kentucky and Gonzaga will take place on Dec. 7, 2024, in Climate Pledge Arena in Seattle. A game time and television network will be announced at a later date.

Tickets for this year’s matchup go on sale to the public on June 28 at 1 p.m. ET at

The teams will meet in Nashville at Bridgestone Arena during the 2025-26 season.

Kentucky head coach Mark Pope and his staff have put together a dynamic roster for the 2024-25 season that features a mix of six fifth-year players, one senior, one junior, one sophomore and three freshmen.

UK’s veterans have combined to play in 845 collegiate games and have scored nearly 8,000 career points. Ansley Almonor, Lamont Butler, Andrew Carr and Amari Williams are all 1,000-point scorers. The group has also drained 1,033 career 3-pointers at a 37.0% rate.

Butler and Williams were named their league’s defensive player of the year, while Koby Brea and Jaxson Robinson have been tabbed a conference’s sixth man of the year in their career and Almonor was a most improved selection. Brandon Garrison is a former McDonald’s All-American. Kerr Kriisa has played in 99 career games and has made 238 3-pointers, while Otega Oweh has seen action in 60 games and was Oklahoma’s second-leading scorer a season ago.

Kentucky’s freshmen group includes Travis Perry and Trent Noah from the state of Kentucky and Collin Chandler, a former top-35 signee in the class of 2022. Perry is the state’s all-time leading scorer, while Noah broke the Sweet 16 state record for most 3-pointers drained in a single run with 19 this season.
