UK Basketball to play Pikeville and Georgetown #BBN @GCAthletics @UPIKEAthletics

Press release morning from the UK Basketball offices.

UK Releases 2014-15 Men’s Basketball Exhibition Slate
Wildcats to host Georgetown and Pikeville
LEXINGTON, Ky. – The Kentucky men’s basketball team has announced that Georgetown College and the University of Pikeville will make up the exhibition portion of its 2014-15 schedule.
The Wildcats will host Pikeville on Nov. 2, followed by a Nov. 7 match-up with Georgetown before heading into regular-season play.
UK and Pikeville have met twice in exhibition play, most recently prior to the start of the 2010-11 season. The Wildcats won that meeting 97-66.
Kentucky and Georgetown played regularly in the early 1900s, with UK posting a 35-15 mark against the Tigers. Most recently the two teams met in an exhibition contest prior to the start of the 2005-06 season with the Wildcats claiming an 85-63 victory.
Georgetown head coach Chris Briggs served as a student manager for the UK basketball program from 2001-04 and was a graduate assistant for the Wildcats from 2004-06.
It marks the first time since the 2004-05 season that a pair of in-state schools has made up Kentucky’s exhibition season.

My thoughts
This is great for UK, but this is even better for both Georgetown and Pikeville. What young man playing for either of these squads, who grew up in KY, wouldn't want to play UK at Rupp arena? This is fantastic. Take these two, plus EKU and Louisville in the 2014-2015, you have 4 teams playing UK from within the state. Can we keep the Transylavania game too? What about WKU? Murray St anyone? Bring back Morehead?! Take a listen to the podcast. I address this topic fully!

The Cardinals and the Commodores are currently in a rebuilding phase, and in this contest the Cardinals may be a little more advanced. Keep an eye on both of these programs as they will progress greatly in the years to come!
