Tickets On Sale Monday July 28 for 3rd Annual UK Alumni Charity Game
Kentucky Coach John Calipai has a way to keep big blue nation entertained with basketball during the slow summer months. This year he could have held off scheduling any events, because his 2014-2015 team is using its every 4 year trip to tour the Bahamas next month. Instead of relaxing some when he returns from the trip he goes and schedules the 3rd Annual UK Alumni Charity Game for August 24, 2014 in Rupp Arena. This is a treat for all who love basketball let alone UK fans. It all started in the summer of 2011 when Coach Calipari brought the Dominican Republic team he coached for the Olympic Trials to play in an exhibition game against former Kentucky players. The event was held in the KFC YUM Center in front of 15,000 plus. Denny Crum and Joe B Hall coached the UK Pro’s. The following year Coach Cal scheduled a charity game between members from the 1996 Kentucky Wildcats National Title Team against Members from the 2012 Kentucky Wildcats National Title team. That event sold out Rupp Arena. 2013 Game featured most of Calipari’s former player from his 4 year tenure as a Kentucky coach playing against one another. This year event will be held on August 24 at 6pm in Rupp Arena. Former Kentucky Players will compete against non-UK players. Per NBA rules UK will not be able to confirm what players will participate, but expect to see some élite talent on the court.
