LEXINGTON, Ky. — The Kentucky Basketball team confirmed the second of nine non-conference games on Thursday. The Wildcats will meet UCLA in the CBS Sports Classic on December 19th and it's been moved to Cleveland.

The doubleheader will begin at 2 p.m. ET with North Carolina taking on Ohio State, which will be followed by Kentucky and UCLA.

Last week, the UK program also revealed it would play Texas in the Big 12-SEC Challenge on January 30th in Rupp Arena.

This will be the seventh straight year for the CBS Sports Classic which has included UK every year. The Wildcats are 3-3 in the event after losing to Ohio State last year in Las Vegas.

UCLA has Johnny Juzang who played for the Wildcats last year. He was cleared to play immediately for the Bruins this season. Mick Cronin is the head at UCLA.
