The matchup between Kentucky and Gonzaga is set for Sunday, November 20 in Spokane, Washington.

Kentucky’s John Calipari confirmed the location of the game Thursday in a tweet, saying the non-conference battle will be played at Spokane Arena, not the Kennel on campus.

The Kennel holds 6,000 for basketball games while Spokane Arena’s capacity for basketball is between 12,000-13,000.

The UK coach released a statement on the series and why the game is being played at Spokane Arena, saying teams that want to play Kentucky in a 6,000-seat facility want UK to lose.
