Calipari says Kentucky vs. Texas A&M has been canceled

Kentucky will not take on the Texas A&M Aggies on Tuesday evening, John Calipari announced on Saturday.

During a postgame interview with KSR’s own Matt Jones on ESPN Radio, the UK head coach said the team’s game against Texas A&M has been canceled, marking the seventh straight postponement and/or cancellation for the Aggies.

“Now the game got canceled Tuesday, so we’ve got a couple left,” Calipari said. “I’m hoping the following week we get a couple of our league games that have been canceled at home.”

Going into the weekend, Texas A&M had been forced to postpone six consecutive games, with five delays coming as a result of positive COVID-19 test results, contact tracing and subsequent quarantining of individuals within the program.

Following Kentucky’s win at Tennessee Saturday afternoon, Calipari didn’t seem optimistic that Tuesday night’s game would be played, adding that UK will likely play three SEC games the final week of the season.

“Yeah (we could add new games), but the gauntlet that these kids have just been through, I’m not sure we don’t take a couple days and catch our breath,” Calipari said. “Then try to play both A&M and South Carolina both that last week where we get three games. Play at Mississippi, then two home games before our conference tournament. That’s what I’d like to do. These kids need a breath, come on. They’ve been through a gauntlet.”

Should Calipari’s proposal come to fruition, Kentucky will not play until Saturday when the Wildcats take on the Florida Gators at Rupp Arena, followed by the team’s trip to Oxford, MS for a battle with Ole Miss on Tuesday, March 2. Then, according to Calipari’s suggestion, UK would fit in the Texas A&M and South Carolina make-up games between March 3-7, giving Kentucky four more games on the schedule.

And then from there, UK would head to Nashville the following week for the SEC Tournament.

Gonna be a busy couple of weeks.

    These schools being such SA by canceling games for as little as one positive tests. All you need is 8 players to compete plus 99.9% of young college athletes have minor or no symptoms at all. Just play the damn games.

      Long time reader first time commenter? Obviously the post was deleted. As the majority of nokneeling comments should be.

      Can we move on from the no kneeling comments yet? Every day. And it’s over.

      Yes, Detroit has no game next week. Play them Tuesday keep the positive momentum
