Louisville basketball coach Chris Mack trolls Kentucky, says game against at Yum! Center is on
Kentucky is poised to face in-state rival Louisville on the hardwood this year, after all.
After Cardinals coach Chris Mack originally expressed doubts against hosting John Calipari Kentucky in a potentially empty Yum! Center—with the prospect of next year’s game in Lexington being played with fans—Calipari went on the record and stated that it was up to the Cardinals if the game was to be played or not, stating that it was prepared to move forward with another team instead.
On Tuesday, Mack posted a 2-minute video on Twitter, responding to Calipari’s comments.
“I want to do what’s most convenient for John and his program,” Mack said. “Never mind that we had a Dec. 12, mutually agreed-upon date to play the game, and never mind that they backed out from the 12th because they were returning from London on Dec. 6.”
Obviously, the London date to take on Michigan at the O2 Arena won’t happen for the Wildcats until 2022 due to the pandemic, but they were able to book a non-conference matchup against Notre Dame on Dec. 12 instead.
As for the Wildcats-Cardinals game, Mack’s all in.
“See you at the Yum! Center,” he concluded.
The date of the game between the Cardinals and the Wildcats is unknown, but it’s sure to have an extra edge to it.
To Cardinals’ fans everywhere…. pic.twitter.com/vBMgnduWaD
