The University of Kentucky was officially announced today as one of four teams participating in the inaugural CBS Sports Classic, which will kick off this year with the Cats taking on UCLA in Chicago.
UK will match up with the Bruins at the United Center in Chicago on December 20, with games against Ohio State (at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. in 2015) and North Carolina (Las Vegas in 2016) to follow.
In a press release, John Calipari said, “This event will feature programs that represent 25 national championships, which is remarkable. Not only that, some of the best fan bases in college basketball will have the opportunity to see us play in three major venues against some of the top programs in the country. We’re excited to be part of an event of this caliber for the next three seasons.”
