Big East-SEC Challenge At Freedom Hall

[stextbox id=”custom”]
University of Louisville fans wondering whether the Lexington school would be playing home games in the new KFC Yum Center may have just gotten the answer they wanted.


The University of Kentucky will play Notre Dame at Freedom Hall on Dec. 8 in the second game of the Big East-SEC challenge that day. Seton Hall and Arkansas will play in the first game at 7 p.m.

Curious location. The spin will be amusing.

    Good Job YUM Center!!! Keep the dirty kitty-litter Cats out of our new arena! We will OWN them on our new court! Looking forward to Terrance Jennings putting a Spalding logo on Kanter’s forehead! Let the games begin!

    haha, Louisville will be lucky to stay within 20 points of UK this year. add 2 to that total for every following year. you might as well paint your new floor blue DoubleJ cause we’ll own you guys every time!!!

      In your dreams…we’re OBVIOUSLY a huge threat to you or you wouldn’t be H E R E. One year of relevancy does not make a team…and there’s a good possibility of that year being vacated. The team in blue can play in our cast-off, it’s still a few notches above coRUPPt arena.

      Funny stuff. Throwing in a bunch of freshmen into college basketball does not always guarantee success. Last season was probably an exception at UK.

      Chad, you might want to include some examples of what you’re referring to. Otherwise your comment doesn’t make sense.

    I’m a UK fan and I’m so happy to see this match-up again at Freedom Hall. I for one love the place and would hate to see it go. Now for ND and UK to play each other at the Hall? I’m so happy!
