SEC Network unveiled its full television slate for the 2019-20 season, with more than 175 men's and women's basketball regular season games scheduled for SEC Network. In addition, SEC Network+, the digital companion to SEC Network, will stream hundreds of matchups throughout the season.

On the men's side, 114 total preseason and regular season showdowns are set for SEC Network, including more than 70 conference contests. Kentucky starts out the slate with a pair of exhibition games on Sunday, Oct. 27 and Sunday, Nov. 1 against Georgetown College and Kentucky State, respectively.
