Staying on the East Coast following their win over Kansas on Tuesday, John Calipari and UK will make a stop to tour the ESPN campus in Bristol, Conn., on Friday. The team will also stop by for interviews with a number of different ESPN platforms will hold a practice at ESPN's newly constructed gym.

"We're excited to be in the studio and meet all the personalities," Calipari told ESPN. "Our players grew up on ESPN and it's a big deal to them and our staff."

ESPN often hosts coaches and athletes for similar visits and the network is excited to have the second-ranked Wildcats.

"With Kentucky playing in the area this week/weekend, it worked out for them to make a stop in Bristol on Friday," said Nick Dawson, ESPN's director of programming and acquisitions. "We look forward to having them on-campus. Hopefully, they enjoy a behind the scenes look at ESPN."

As a part of UK's visit, Calipari is scheduled to appear live on SportsCenter during the 1 p.m. hour and line on the Scott Van Pelt Show during the 2 p.m. hour.
