Kentucky Wildcats to host Stanford in 2019 preseason July 12, 2021 July 12, 2021 admin

KENTUCKY (AP) The Kentucky Wildcats will host Stanford on Aug. 26, 2019, for the first time in the school’s 75-year history.

The Wildcats defeated Kentucky in their previous game, a 79-67 victory in the 2015 NCAA Tournament.

They will be without star freshman point guard Brandon Ingram, who is recovering from a season-ending injury.

The Kentucky coaches also hope that junior point guard Jordan Hulls, who was an All-American at UCLA, can step up after leading the Bruins to a national title in 2018.

The last time the Wildcats hosted Stanford was the 2002-03 season.

The program is now 19-17 in Pac-12 play and 15-11 overall.
