For those lamenting the absence of a game against North Carolina on Kentucky's schedule next season, there will be a way to get a taste of the on again-off again rivalry between two of college basketball's bluest blue bloods.
Kentucky announced Friday that former UK players will face former UNC players in a charity game Sept. 13 in Rupp Arena. Proceeds will go to charity. NBA rules prohibit colleges from identifying which of its players will participate in such a charity game.
Tickets for this UK-UNC game go on sale Aug. 14, at 10 a.m.
All seats are reserved with ticket prices ranging from $100 (premium lower level) to $5 (upper level). Tickets will be available at Rupp Arena, online at Ticketmaster.com, at any Ticketmaster outlet or by phone at 1-800-745-3000. There is an eight-ticket limit per person.
Ticket buyers must be 16 years old. Children under the age of 2 get in free with a paying adult (the child will not have a seat and must sit on the lap of the paying adult).
The game will tip off at 5:30 p.m. on Sept. 13. Rupp Arena doors will open at 4 p.m.
