Kentucky Wildcats Planning Trip Canada will face CIS basketball opponents

Kentucky’s basketball team plans to go on a tour of Canada before next season, officials told the UK Athletics Association Board of Directors on Thursday.

Details of the trip have not been finalized, Athletics Director Mitch Barnhart said. The preliminary plan is to fly to Detroit and then bus the team into Canada.

The tour would give a team expected to be dependent on freshmen extra practice time and games.

The NCAA allows teams to go on a foreign tour once every four years. The association plans to consider ways fans can accompany the team to defray costs.

UK will make sure the trip comes after incoming freshmen are eligible to play, Deputy Director of Athletics Rob Mullens said.

The NCAA said that the trip would have to take place after the start of the fall semester in order for freshmen to participate.

Budget approved.
