Kentucky is heading back to the Bahamas.

The Wildcats and Arizona State put out a release earlier this week that announced that the two programs will be squaring off in Nassau.

The game will be held on Nov. 28th, 2016, in the Imperial Ballroom at the Atlantis resort, the same space where the Wildcats played six games last August and where the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament is hosted every November.

“We are thrilled to return to the Bahamas in 2016 to play Arizona State,” Kentucky coach John Calipari said in the release. “The Bahamas bring back a lot of good memories for our team. It was there we built the foundation for our unforgettable 2014-15 season. I have a ton of respect for Coach Bobby Hurley and believe he’s going to take Arizona State to the next level. A great opponent coupled with a beautiful setting after the holiday weekend should make this an unbelievable trip for our fans.”

The game is the second in a two-year series. The first game will be held at Rupp Arena this fall.
