SEC/Big East InvitationalI had linked to this in the morning but it wasn’t official at that time. Now it is.

ESPN announced the schedule for the Big East/SEC Invitational today and the UConn Huskies men’s basketball team will take on the John Calipari-led Kentucky Wildcats in the second game of a doubleheader at Madison Square Garden on December 9th.

Georgia will take on St. John’s in the first game.

“We are excited to be a part of this and to have the opportunity to play a program like Kentucky,” Calhoun said in a statement. “We always try to schedule against the best and think this is a continuation of that tradition for us. In addition, it is always exciting for our team and our fans to play in Madison Square Garden, an arena that has been the site of so many successes for us over the years.”
