Calipari's Return: Kentucky To Open Barclays

Well, we know there will be basketball at the Barclays Center November 9 of next year. John Calipari announced at a press conference Tuesday that Kentucky and Maryland will play the first college basketball game at the Brooklyn arena, part of a double-header called the "Barclays Center Classic". ESPN will air the game.

Fulfilling another pledge, Brett Yormark announced that LIU and Morehead State will play the second game that night. It's all being promoted under the rubric of "Brooklyn Hoops", the trademarked name the arena will apparently use to market its annual schedule of 25 college games.
