Former Kentucky stars who either played or are playing professionally will return to Rupp Arena for another charity alumni game.
This year's edition features John Calipari-coached players prominently, with members of all four of the most recent teams represented.
The alumni game will be played Monday, Sept. 9 at 7 p.m. Ticket information will be released at a later date.
Last year's game had a "1996 vs. 2012" angle to it, and ended up raising about $350,000 for charity.
This year's game bills itself more toward the four Calipari years. The official UK release says fans will "to enjoy some of the top talent to come through the UK men’s basketball program since the 2009-10 season."
Even better? The release calls this game the "second annual" edition. Calipari's talked about making this a yearly event, and I'm a fan of that idea. Let's hope this continues to evolve into somewhat of a tradition.
