Louisville to Host Kentucky Wesleyan College in November Exhibition Game

Kentucky Wesleyan College will travel to Louisville for an exhibition game on November 9.

Here's a release from KWC:

OWENSBORO, Ky. (June 30, 2015) – Kentucky Wesleyan will play Louisville in a men's exhibition basketball contest on Monday, Nov. 9, at the KFC Yum Center (22,000), as announced by third-year Panther head coach Happy Osborne.

Game time and ticket information will be announced at a later date. This marks the fifth time Kentucky Wesleyan has faced U of L in exhibition play. The last time the teams met was Oct. 29, 2013.

“We’re really looking forward to the opportunity to play Louisville and we appreciate Coach (Rick) Pitino’s invitation,” Osborne said.

“With their talent, athleticism and how hard they play for Pitino, it will definitely help prepare us for our season. To be the best you have to play the best and we have more than achieved our goal."

The Panthers return three full-time and three part-time starters from last season’s 22-8 squad while the Cardinals return one starter from their 27-9 NCAA East Region Finalist team.
