There will be no trip to Thompson Boling Arena this year for the UK basketball team. According to the Courier Journal, Tennessee coach Cuonzo Martin has confirmed Tuesday that UK and the Vols will play only once this regular season, and that matchup would be at Rupp Arena. It will mark the first time since 1952-53 that Kentucky hasn't played a regular season game at Tennessee.
The former SEC Eastern Division rivals aren't guaranteed to play each other twice a year now because the conference no longer is divided into two divisions for basketball. Florida is now Kentucky’s permanent home and home matchup under the new SEC scheduling arrangement.
