The Alumni Game is Set to tip off Monday night at 7 p.m. ET, the game will only feature Wildcats currently or formerly playing professionally. The Big Blue Nation will have an opportunity to enjoy some of the top talent to come through the UK men’s basketball program since the 2009-10 season. Per NBA rules, the University of Kentucky cannot confirm individual players participating in the exhibition game.
Rumor has it that Demarcus Cousins will not participate in the game due to contract limitations, but will participate as an assistant coach. So come on out and be witness to some of the best talent that has worn the Blue and White in the last decade.
Big Blue Corner WILL be in attendance to give our thoughts of the game and give you all the information we can possibly gather in such a short amount of time. So look for our thoughts on ALL the happenings of the Alumni Game the day after.
