The Kentucky men’s basketball team will host its annual Pro Day on October 10 at Rupp Arena, the school announced Friday.

After hosting a virtual event last season due to COVID-19, Kentucky will return to an in-person experience with scouts and personnel from all 30 NBA teams expected to be in attendance.

Fans will also get the chance to watch the event from home, with SEC Network televising the event for an eighth consecutive season. The televised portion of Pro Day will air live from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. ET.

This will be the first time the event is held in Rupp Arena since 2018 and just the third time total.

The Wildcats will go through a combine-like practice conducted by Kentucky coaches and staff, highlighted by agility and shooting drills, along with 3-on-3 and 5-on-5 scrimmaging.

Pro Day will serve as a warm-up leading up to Big Blue Madness, which will take place on Oct. 15 in Rupp Arena.

From there, the Blue-White Game is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 22, followed by exhibition games against Kentucky Wesleyan and Miles College on Oct. 29 and Nov. 5, respectively.

Kentucky’s season-opener is scheduled for Nov. 9 against Duke in the Champions Classic at Madison Square Garden.

UK Athletics plans to operate venues at full capacity this season after limited fan attendance in 2020-21.
