A buried note from Sean Woods' introduction as Morehead's coach on Monday: Morehead has loaded its schedule for the upcoming year, and that apparently includes a game at Rupp Arena against the Cats. It was in line well before Woods was named coach, obviously, based on the timing of it all.
The date is not yet set, but the AD indicated they'd likely put the game in the week or so before Thanksgiving.
Sean Woods coached against UK twice while he was the Mississippi Valley State coach. Morehead State has played at Rupp Arena once in recent years, on Nov. 11, 2009. UK won that game 75-59 in John Calipari's first game as Kentucky's coach.
Morehead will have an uphill battle if it wants to knock off Murray State for the OVC's automatic NCAA bid, but it's a talented bunch that should finish among the top few teams in its conference.
Always like giving the in-state schools a game. I'd never do a home-and-home if I was UK (which is probably why we don't see a Murray State game) but I think they should always try to play any of the state schools in Rupp.

If you are going to schedule sacrificial lambs. Why not schedule Kentucky sacrificial lambs and keep the money in state
I'm so excited.
