HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. (FOX 56) — Kentucky football’s season may be in full swing, but the basketball season is just around the corner, and the cats are ready to kick it off by hitting the court for the annual Blue-White game.

The basketball Cats announced Wednesday that they will continue the trend of playing the game in a different region of the state. The 2023 edition of the scrimmage will be played on Oct. 21 at Northern Kentucky’s Truist Arena.

Similar to last year’s game, played in Pikeville, all ticket revenue will benefit the Team Eastern Kentucky Flood Relief Fund and the Team Western Kentucky Tornado Relief Fund.


Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Thursday and will be available online through Ticketmaster or in person at the Truist Arena box office.

The 2023 Blue-White game will tip off at 6 p.m. on SEC Network+.
