Sept. 9 has been set as the tentative date for the Kentucky alumni game (the plan is 2010 vs. 2012, with assorted others mixed in), according to a UK spokesman.
Since it falls between July 1 and Sept. 15, the NBA won't have to approve it (some Washington players just got fined for playing in theirs, which was in late June).
This should be a good one if it all comes together.
For what it's worth, John Wall has previously praised the talent of the 2012 team, saying he would take them in a matchup against the 1996 Kentucky team.
It came with a caveat.
"But they got to beat 2010 first," Wall said last year. "Yeah, we could take them. We could take on any challenge. We could take them on."
