LEXINGTON — Calipari vs. Calipari is officially back on the Kentucky men's basketball team's schedule.
The Kentucky vs. Detroit Mercy game has been rescheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 15 at 5:00 p.m. inside Rupp Arena. It will be televised by the SEC Network.
The original game, which was initially scheduled for November 27, had to be postponed due to COVID-19 safety protocols for the Detroit Mercy program. Tickets and parking permits for the original Nov. 27 date with Detroit Mercy will be valid for the rescheduled game against the Titans. Ticket holders do not need to take further action. Mobile ticket management features will be available to season ticket holders through their My UK Account.
UK ticket holders will receive communication via email if additional changes are made to Kentucky's schedule throughout the season. Given the unusual nature of this season – specifically, the current unknowns related to postponed games getting rescheduled or cancelled games getting replaced – UK Athletics appreciates the continued support, flexibility and understanding of its ticket holders.
The headliner for this game for the Big Blue Nation is the return of former UK guard and son of head coach John Calipari, Brad Calipari. Brad Calipari is entering his second season with the Titans after averaging 6.1 points and 1.1 rebounds in his first season with the Titans last year. He was second on the team with 46 3-pointers.
