Cats Travel to Kansas for First Time in 16 Years
No. 19/21 Kentucky (10-3) at Kansas (8-4)Saturday, Jan. 7, 2006 - 12:00 p.m. ET
- Lawrence, Kan.
Kentucky, the all-time winningest program in college basketball, travels to Lawrence, Kan., Saturday to face the Kansas Jayhawks, who rank third all-time in wins. It?s the Wildcats first visit to Allen Fieldhouse in over 16 years.
The Wildcats ride a season-best, four-game win streak into Saturday?s non-conference finale, but the contest marks UK?s first road game in more than a month. The team?s last visit to Lawrence ended in the second-worst loss in Wildcat history and the worst in modern history. The Jayhawks, then coached by Roy Williams, forced Rick Pitino?s debut UK team into 27 turnovers in the 150-95 KU win.
This is Kentucky?s final non-conference game before opening SEC play vs. Vanderbilt Tuesday.
