The University of Kentucky’s 2019-2020 men’s basketball schedule continues to move toward completion.

Another piece to the puzzle fell into place Tuesday when tip-off times were announced for the CBS Sports Classic in Las Vegas on Dec. 21.

North Carolina and UCLA will open the doubleheader with a 3 p.m. EST tip-off. Kentucky is scheduled to face Ohio State at 5:15 p.m.

The CBS Sports Classic will be played at 18,000-seat T-Mobile Arena, a 3-year-old venue in Las Vegas.

The last time T-Mobile Arena hosted the event, Kentucky defeated North Carolina 103-100 in 2016-17.

Kentucky is 3-2 all-time in the CBS Sports Classic, having taken two games from UNC, split two games with UCLA and lost to Ohio State in their previous meeting in 2015-16.
