According to a report by Matt Norlander of CBS Sports, Kentucky will hosts its own bubble in Lexington in a multi-team pod format.
"Detroit, Hartford and Richmond are in the final stages of agreeing to play [with] UK in first week of the season. Each team would play each other once. Three doubleheaders over four or five days," reports Norlander. “These four schools were already involved in a Kentucky-catalyzed MTE, but the dates were scheduled prior to Nov. 25. Now they’ll be pushed back and done in the end of November. John Calipari’s son is a senior at Detroit, too. Cal has been vocal about big schools helping out mids.”
This would give Kentucky a chance to get 3 games under their belt before heading down to play in the Champions Classic, which has been moved to Orlando this year.
It's not surprising that Detroit got thrown into this mix, as Cal has openly expressed that they will be on Kentucky schedule at some point once Brad Calipari announced his decision to transfer to the school.
“We now have multiple paths, the NBA and WNBA have both shown that we can do this," said John Calipari in an interview."
