The Kentucky Wildcats men’s basketball game vs. Detroit Mercy on Dec. 15 in Rupp Arena has been postponed, UK announced Tuesday.

The game, originally scheduled for Nov. 27 in the Bluegrass Showcase and then rescheduled to Dec. 15 because of COVID-19 safety protocols, has been postponed a second time due to concerns with COVID-19 protocols and calendar logistics.

The postponement is due strictly to testing and safety logistics. Both UK and Detroit Mercy will continue with their current practice and playing schedule.

The status of the game – in addition to Detroit Mercy’s games vs. Morehead State and Richmond that were also a part of the Bluegrass Showcase – will be determined at a later date once COVID-19 protocols and calendar logistics provide the opportunity for a comprehensive and safe resolution.

UK ticket holders will receive communication via email if additional changes are made to Kentucky’s schedule throughout the season.

If circumstances change during the season and games are canceled and not rescheduled, UK Athletics will evaluate credit and refund options for the ticket portion of payment at the conclusion of the season.

With hopes of rescheduling Detroit Mercy for later in the season, UK does not plan on rescheduling an opponent for Dec. 15.

With Detroit Mercy currently off the schedule, Kentucky’s next game after Notre Dame is slated for Dec. 19 vs. UCLA in the CBS Sports Classic in Cleveland.
