Eastern Kentucky University and the University of Kentucky are slated to meet this December in regular season men's basketball action. 

Both schools were in St. Louis in March to play in the 2014 NC double A tournament. 

Eastern fought bravely against Kansas before losing by eleven.  UK beat Kansas State and Wichita State in its run to the championship game where the Wildcats lost to Connecticut. 

This season's meeting is scheduled for December seventh at Rupp Arena.  It will be the eleventh for the two schools separated by less than 30 miles.  The last time the two teams met, UK won by 13 points.​
