Herald-Leader Staff ReportJuly 30, 2013 

University of Kentucky basketball fans will have a chance to see several former stars in action when the Wildcats host their second annual UK Alumni Charity Game in Rupp Arena on Monday, Sept. 9.

The game, scheduled to tip off at 7 p.m., will feature only Wildcats who are current or former professional players. Members of all four of UK’s John Calipari-coached teams will participate.

Per NBA rules, UK said it cannot confirm the names of individual players participating in the exhibition.

Ticket information and additional details will be released at a later date.

Last September, Kentucky hosted a charity doubleheader that attracted an announced crowd of 10,173 in Rupp Arena. Calipari said that the event and an auction held at his home the night before raised about $350,000 for charity.

Last year's games included such former stars as Anthony Davis, DeMarcus Cousins, Tony Delk and Jeff Sheppard.
