IPFW men to travel to Kentucky


The IPFW men's basketball team will travel to Rupp Arena in Lexington, Kentucky on Nov. 22 to face Kentucky, the team announced Tuesday.

The contest, part of the Adolph Rupp Classic, will be the first time the teams will meet and will take place exactly one year after the Mastodons' overtime victory over Indiana at the Coliseum.

IPFW has previously played Southeastern Conference members Auburn (2012) and Arkansas (2016).

The IPFW athletic department also announced a new partnership with Under Armour beginning July 1.

"The agreement will unify our programs under one brand," athletic director Kelley Hartley Hutton said in a release. "We are pleased to partner with one of the most recognizable performance brands in the world."

The Mastodons join Wisconsin, Notre Dame, Maryland, the Naval Academy, Northwestern, among other athletic departments that have partnered with Under Armour.
