Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari expects the season to happen as scheduled amid the coronavirus pandemic.

With all sports currently halted and the future of college football in limbo, it’s a fair question to ask whether or not we get college basketball as fears about the virus continue to spread. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Well, in the eyes of Calipari, we’ll be getting the games. He told Paul Finebaum during a recent talk that he “fully expects” games to be happening in November.

You can listen to his full comments below.

Folks, you can prepare for people to lose their minds if we don’t get college football and basketball. It will get ugly.

The fact we’re even discussing college football not happening is bad enough. If people lose basketball as well, then all bets are off.

Calipari seems very confident that coronavirus won’t stop the college basketball season from happening, and I hope he’s 100% correct.

Right now, we’re in the trenches fighting this brutal war against coronavirus. We’re staying home and doing everything we can to win.

We need something to look forward to, and that’s our college sports. Let’s all hope Calipari is correct and we win this war sooner than later.
