As sporting events across the globe are postponed or canceled due to worldwide health concerns, there has been speculation about the Kentucky vs. Michigan college basketball game in London in December.

The Basketball Hall of Fame announced an update on the contest today. It's still on.

"At this time, we are moving forward with plans to host the inaugural London showcase at The O2 in December 2020," the statement reads.

"The health and safety of the players, fans and staff is of the utmost importance; we will continue to work and communicate with the four schools involved, and we will provide additional updates as needed."

December is roughly nine months away, so who knows what'll happen between now and then, but as of now, the game is on.

Both Michigan and Kentucky are expected to be formidable in 2020-21, assuming there is a season.

The Wildcats are bringing in another elite recruiting class and the Wolverines will be entering Year 2 of the Juwan Howard era.
