The North Carolina-Kentucky series isn’t done. Apparently, it’s just on hiatus.

After taking a break next season from the game that has been played for the past dozen years, Kentucky coach John Calipari announced Wednesday on his website, CoachCal.com, that the matchup will resume in 2013-14:

“We are adding North Carolina back to the schedule for the 2013-14 season. The game will be played opposite of our Louisville series (when we play Louisville at home, we’ll play North Carolina on the road, and vice versa). Roy Williams and I both agreed this was a good year to take a break. We both look forward to continuing this series in 2013-14 for two more years and beyond.”

The Wildcats are scheduled to play Louisville at home in ’13-14, meaning UNC will host Kentucky the first year the series resumes.

Seeing UNC has the Maui Invitational and will play at Indiana and Texas in the upcoming season, not having Kentucky on the schedule is probably a good thing. UNC will have some growing to do and there are only so many bumps a team like that can absorb early in the season.
