One college basketball bubble is officially in the works, and it involves your Kentucky Wildcats.
This afternoon, ESPN’s Jeff Borzello broke the news that State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia is “working on plans” for a Holiday Hoopsgiving bubble event this year.
The original plans for the event included matchups such as Kentucky vs. Georgia Tech and Auburn vs. Memphis. With this updated plan, though, participating teams would play multiple games, creating a round-robin style event.

Kentucky’s matchup against Georgia Tech was originally scheduled to begin the event on Friday, November 27, followed by a quadruple-header on Saturday, December 12 with the following matchups: Clemson vs Alabama, Mississippi State vs. Dayton, LSU vs. South Florida, and Auburn vs. Memphis. All games were scheduled to take place in State Farm Arena, home of the Atlanta Hawks.
Could we see our first John Calipari vs. Penny Hardaway matchup with UK vs. Memphis? What would fans think of Kentucky vs. Clemson, Dayton and South Florida?
