UKMBB vs. Richmond 1:00 PM
University of Kentucky Men's Basketball will begin the season in Rupp Arena with the Bluegrass Showcase, a multi-team event featuring Morehead State, Detroit Mercy and Richmond. The event will include two games a day on Nov. 25, Nov. 27 and Nov. 29. Each team will face each other once.
The Wildcats play their home games in Rupp Arena, a facility named for their former coach, Adolph Rupp. Rupp Arena is the largest arena in the United States built specifically for basketball, with an official capacity of 20,500. As a result, Kentucky consistently ranks first in the nation in home game attendance. The team's huge fan base is often referred to as the "Big Blue Nation" or the "Big Blue Mist", the latter because the fans typically engulf tournament and neutral-site venues and cities.
