Basketball season is just around the corner, as the Kentucky Wildcats are officially starting practice this week.

With the conference schedule announced to start September, and some non-conference games being released throughout the offseason, we finally know who the Cats will open the regular season against in just over a month.

According to Darrell Bird of CatsPause.com, the Howard Bison will come to Lexington for the first matchup between the two programs. The game is scheduled for November 7th at 6:30 pm ET, and will be on the SEC Network.

The Bison, who are a part of the Mid-Eastern Atlantic Conference, finished last season at 16-13 and were 9-5 in MEAC play. They ended up losing in the first round of their conference tournament.

With the addition of the Bison, it will be a good test for a young team that has the non-conference gauntlet of Michigan State (Nov. 15), Gonzaga (Nov. 20), Michigan (Dec. 4), UCLA (Dec. 17), Louisville (Dec. 31), and Kansas (Jan. 28).

We all saw the talent and depth this team has to offer over the summer with the Bahamas tour, now we are only a few short weeks from seeing them take the floor at Rupp Arena. Should be a fun one.

Spot on, CMD. It's hard to advance in the tournament when you're preparation is a schedule full of cupcakes.

And this year's schedule is the way it should be. I find it hard to get exited over the cupcake games.

While I love a good basketball game at any time, I also find it hard to get excited going into SEC play with a bunch of losses.

NOt sure that playing these games in November/December do as much as advertised to prepare them for March. Heck, it could just sap thier self-confidence if they go out to Spokane and have their asses handed to them by Gonzaga. And if we lose a few more in the Michigan State, Michigan, UCLA, UofL, and Kansas guantlet, well... Hello, low seed, early exit.

You just can't win no matter who is on the schedule. You just have to win a whole lot more than you lose. [Big Grin]
