LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky will play in-state rival Louisville and Duke at Rupp Arena in a non-conference schedule featuring four NCAA tournament teams.

For the first time since 2007, the Wildcats will host the rival Cardinals at the 23,000-seat home of the men’s basketball team on Dec. 10 in one of two “Pack The House” games promoted to boost attendance. Duke comes in 10 days later with Kentucky seeking to avenge a 2013 loss before a record 23,706.

Besides those tournament participants, the Wildcats also play at Arizona State (Nov. 15) and host Tennessee State (Dec. 28).

Kentucky opens Nov. 13 against Rice and will host Morehead State (Nov. 18), Colorado (Nov. 22), Eastern Michigan (Nov. 25) and Jackson State (Nov. 29). December features road games at Northern Kentucky and Middle Tennessee.
