Belmont basketball is taking on all comers next season. The school announced Wednesday the Bruins will play the Kentucky Wildcats December 21st at Rupp Arena.
The Bruins are coming off of their sixth NCAA Tournament appearance in eight years and the Wildcats are bringing in what some regard as the best recruiting class of all-time.
Belmont head coach Rick Byrd said, “We are excited about the opportunity to play a historic program like Kentucky in a historic venue like Rupp Arena. We look for chances to play outstanding competition and provide memorable experiences for our players. This certainly qualifies.”
The Bruins will also play North Carolina this coming season.
