The London game is actually happening, guys!
Jon Rothstein is reporting that Kentucky and Michigan will play a game in London, England next season as part of a new series. The game is scheduled for December 2020 at the O2 Arena, which has been used by the NBA for games abroad the past few years. After next year’s game, the series will be a home-and-home, with the 2021 game taking place in Ann Arbor and the 2022 game taking place at Rupp Arena.
More from the New York Times:
The arrangements include the universities trading games against one another on campus (known as a home-and-home series) in the 2021-22 and 2022-23 seasons, according to four people with direct knowledge of the agreements. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss details of a deal that had not been made public.
