Earlier this morning Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reported that the University of Kentucky has scheduled a game with in-state school Eastern Kentucky University for the 2019-2020 season. This raises the question, Will UK and WKU ever schedule a series again?

The Hilltoppers and Wildcats have not met in basketball since the 2012 season in the first round of the NCAA Tournament in Louisville, KY. The two universities have not put each other on the schedule in the pre-season since 2001. (WKU won 64-52 over then #4 UK in Rupp Arena)

What are your thoughts? Will UK ever put WKU back on the schedule?
