The Barclays Center announced “multi-year agreements” to host the Kentucky Wildcats and Maryland going forward.  On Nov. 9, Kentucky and Maryland opened the college season at the new Barclays Center, with the Wildcats winning a close one, 72-69.

Next year, the Wildcats and their five McDonald’s All-Americans will face a young Providence team Dec. 1, while Maryland will also play a game TBD.

Kentucky’s 2013 recruiting class features McDonald’s and Jordan Brand All-American Andrew and Aaron Harrison, Dakari Johnson, Marcus Lee and  James Young.Those five will play in the Jordan Game April 13 at Barclays, too.

“We are excited to return to Barclays Center next year to play Providence,” said Kentucky Head Coach John Calipari. “This season’s game against Maryland was an NCAA Tournament environment in November. It’s a great building and a great city. We’re looking forward to being back in Brooklyn next season and beyond.”
