UK Top Seed...In NIT

UK Top Seed...In NIT

Cats will travel to Calipari's hometown for first round game against Robert Morris (Tuesday, 7:30 ET, ESPN).

UK is the top overall seed two straight years, but not in same tournament.

Here's UK Athletics statement on Kentucky traveling for its first round NIT game.

“We did not place a bid to host the first round of the NIT due to limited staff availability to properly host a game at Memorial Coliseum.  Because the University of Kentucky is hosting the NCAA second- and third-round games at Rupp Arena on March 21 and 23, the facility was not available for a first-round NIT game. We placed a bid to host both the second round and quarterfinal games at Rupp Arena if we advance.” – DeWayne Peevy, UK Executive Associate AD
