#3 Kentucky agrees to home & home with #1 Gonzaga starting in November at The Kennel.

Kentucky MBB Twitter Video

Mark Few calls into the Kentucky Flood Relief Telethon that Kentucky is putting on to help disaster relief victims. Few announces the deal to the Kentucky fans sitting at Rupp who are helping raise money. This will be one of the premier college basketball, if not the premier, games this season.

First game will be at Gonzaga's Kennel on November 20, 2022.

If Few didn't leave for UCLA, he certainly isn't coming to Kentucky.

In all seriousness, excited about this one. Think it'll be a great game this season.

Tickets in the Kennel for this game will probably start at $1k a seat for the rafters IMO. Kennel tickets are one of the hardest tickets to find. Only 6-7 season tickets come on the market per year and have a value of around $250k per season ticket if you want to resell your season ticket slot. Most people have no idea how hot of a commodity those seats are in Spokane with a 40 year waiting list.

How so? What’s their record vs Top 25 teams the last 20 years? I haven’t even looked but I almost feel certain it isn’t a winning record. Probably even worse when you take the also always overrated Saint Marys out of the mix.

Since 2003 Gonzaga is 32-23 against the Top 25 with a win % of 58.2%.

Only two other schools are head of Gonzaga with wins against the Top 25 during this time Duke and Kansas. Duke (65-35) has won 65% and Kansas (85-47) has won 64.4%.

Only 11 teams have a positive win percentage against the Top 25 since 2010 and one of those Idaho only has one win because it only played one top 25 team.

The other six teams are:
Kentucky 57.1%
Oregon 56.5%
Villanova 56.1%
Arizona 54.9%
Virginia 54.3%
Michigan State 52%
New Mexico State 50%.

Since 2015 Gonzaga has the highest win percentage in the country against Top 25 teams at 65.1% with a 28-15 record.

The two teams after the 2018-19 season, have combined for 7 NCAA tournament wins.

Mark Few has won all 7.

The game isn't at the Kennel, it's at the Spokane Center FWIW.

You know I sometimes wished a big time basketball matchup would do a home and home like a conference games are (home and away)

Could you imagine the interest for the return game especially if both are rolling
