After erasing a nine-point halftime deficit to beat Utah Valley 73-63 in its regular season opener on Friday night, Kentucky men’s basketball returns to action Sunday to take on America East Conference power Vermont at Rupp Arena. Tipoff is set for 3:30 p.m. on ESPN.

After going 16-0 in its conference last season, Vermont lost to Purdue 80-70 in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. The Catamounts return four of its top players from that team, which went 29-6 overall. Sunday is the season opener for John Becker’s club.
