The freshman class that some are touting as the best in college basketball history will be coming to Mizzou Arena this February.

The Southeastern Conference announced its 2013-14 men’s basketball schedule on Tuesday, and Kentucky and coach John Calipari — which landed six of Rivals’ top-11 players in the Class of 2013 — is scheduled to play the Tigers in a nationally televised game at noon Feb. 1.

The Saturday afternoon game, which will be broadcast by CBS, is a rematch of last season’s overtime thriller in Lexington, which Kentucky won 90-83.

Missouri will open its SEC slate at home against Georgia for the second straight year at 7 p.m. Jan. 8.

Arkansas and former coach Mike Anderson come to Columbia for a 6 p.m. game Feb. 13. The teams play Jan. 28 in Fayetteville, Ark.

The SEC announced Monday that Missouri’s road game against Florida at 8 p.m. Feb. 4 would appear on ESPN’s “Super Tuesday” telecast.
