Cats to play Pikeville and Georgetown

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.
