Kentucky Reportedly Has New Opponent Lined Up After Ohio State Cancellation

The basketball program has been on the hunt for a new opponent this weekend following 's cancellation due to an outbreak of COVID-19.

As of Thursday evening, it appears the Wildcats have found that replacement.

According to multiple sources, coach John Calipari and his No. 21-ranked squad will face off against the Tar Heels at the CBS Sports Classic in Las Vegas.

UNC is technically still scheduled to play against No. 4 in Las Vegas on Saturday, but that could soon be changing. With a COVID-19 outbreak within the Bruins program, Mick Cronin and his team were forced to postpone yesterday's matchup against Alabama State.

The “current plan” of Kentucky vs. North Carolina will only become official when/if UCLA officially opts out of the game.

Stay tuned for an official announcement of these reports.
