College basketball fans have been hoping for the possibility of the Kentucky Wildcats and Indiana Hoosiers renewing their rivalry with a future home-and-home series.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear as though the two programs will be able to come to an agreement anytime in the near future.
As far as the Hoosiers are concerned, they would prefer the home-and-home series to take place at Rupp Arena and Assembly Hall like the schools have in recent memory. Kentucky, meanwhile, wants to play at a neutral site like Indianapolis.
Kentucky head coach John Calipari doubled-down on his team’s stance when speaking to the media about the potential series this week.
“We’re not coming to Indiana,” Calipari said, via the Indianapolis Star. “Home and home is not happening.”
“We talked about playing two years in Indianapolis and they said no. So, those, right now, these schedules are out ahead a couple years. It may be in the future. There may be something in the future.”
Well, isn’t that a bummer.
If college basketball fans want to see the two teams face off anytime soon, they’ll just have to hope the Wildcats and Hoosiers cross paths in the NCAA Tournament.
