The programs recently announced a six-game series, beginning with this season’s matchup in Spokane. Kentucky hosts GU next season in Lexington. The Zags and Wildcats meet in Seattle during the 2024-25 season, before facing each other in Nashville in 2025-26. Gonzaga and Kentucky meet on their home courts beginning in 2026-27 in Rupp Arena, and in the McCarthey Athletic Center in 2027-28.
The Bulldogs have claimed the West Coast Conference regular-season title in each of the last 10 seasons and appeared in the Final Four twice in the last six years. Gonzaga returns three starters, including All-American Drew Timme, from a team that went 28-4 and advanced to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament a season ago.
The Wildcats’ returning core is headlined by Oscar Tshiebwe, the reigning National Player of the Year, who led the country with 15.1 rebounds per game and also paced the Cats in scoring at 17.4 points per game. Kentucky will also welcome back Sahvir Wheeler, who led the conference and ranked third in the country with 6.9 assists per game. Forwards Daimion Collins, Jacob Toppin and Lance Ware all were instrumental in helping the Wildcats to a 26-8 record and a No. 2 national seed in the NCAA Tournament a year ago.
The teams enter the 2022 matchup having only met once before on the hardwood. Kentucky captured an 80-72 victory in 2002 at the Maui Invitational.
