Will Kentucky have a new home-and-home on its basketball schedule?
If Penny Hardaway has his way, it will.
Hardaway told a Memphis radio station he hopes to add Kentucky to Memphis’ schedule. “I’m trying to get a home and home with Cal,” Hardaway told the show. “Cal promised me if I became a head coach we’d get something set up.”
Penny on schedule: Tennessee is back on the schedule. I’m trying to get a home and home with Cal. Cal promised me if I became a head coach we’d get something set up.”

Cal may be having second thoughts about that promise, now that Hardaway is in his old seat in Memphis. Cal isn’t exactly loved in that city, and it would make for the most hostile environment he’s ever seen. Cal already hates playing in true road environments in the non-conference schedule, so I can’t imagine he’d be eager to return to FedEx Forum, where he was once king.
But if this thing gets set up, sign me up for a seat in Calipari’s return to Memphis.
