Calipari says Kentucky’s non-conference schedule is complete

With every passing day, more news regarding Kentucky’s basketball season leaks out.

Earlier today, during a virtual press conference with the Lexington Rotary Club, Kentucky Men’s Basketball head coach John Calipari spoke about the upcoming 2020-21 season and said that the non-conference schedule has been completed. 

According to Jerry Tipton of The Herald-Leader, Calipari said that he has backup plans set in place just in case something were to fall through.

“We want to be on that list, and we’ll come to Lexington,” Calipari said Kentucky was told, according to Tipton. “If something happens and someone can’t come, you tell us. We’re going to make that happen.”

The school has apparently been prepared for potential start dates of Nov. 10, Nov. 20, and Nov. 25. We all know now that the college basketball season will officially tipoff on Nov. 25, exactly three weeks from the day of this post. The SEC has yet to announce its completed schedule and Calipari said he’s been waiting for that announcement before making the non-conference schedule available to the public.

As of right now, we know that Kentucky will likely play Detroit Mercy, Morehead State, Richmond, Kansas, Georgia Tech, Notre Dame, Texas, UCLA, and Louisville for the non-conference portion of the schedule. However, only the matchups against Texas and UCLA have been confirmed by the school. The SEC slate is expected to contain 18 games with a start date of Dec. 29 or Dec. 30.

It shouldn’t be too much longer before we have a finalized and published schedule.

    I like how “complete” and “finalized” aren’t the same thing here

    That’s a heck of a non-conf schedule. Plus aren’t they playing every SEC team twice this season?
