Kentucky closes out November hosting Providence Nov. 30 in Rupp Arena.

The Wildcats will ring in December with four straight home games beginning with the SEC/Big 12 Challenge on Dec. 5, when the Texas Longhorns come to Lexington. Kentucky will then host Eastern Kentucky (Dec. 7), Columbia (Dec. 10) and North Carolina (Dec. 13) before heading to Chicago to take on UCLA in the inaugural CBS Sports Classic Dec. 20.

UK closes out the 2014 calendar year against in-state rival Louisville Dec. 27.

Prior to regular-season action, Kentucky hosts a pair of in-state exhibition games. The first will be Nov. 2 against Pikeville, followed by a matchup against Georgetown College Nov. 7.

Additional times and television information will be released at later dates.
