After spending a week in Myrtle Beach last week with my family — and my four lively grandchildren — I’ve been trying to catch up on UK news I might have missed.
This tweet from UK associate athletics director DeWayne Peevy certainly caught my eye: “Happy Independence Day! For those that asked, we are aiming for Sept. 9 for the UK Men’s Basketball Charity Alumni Game. Mark your calendars.”
Later Peevy noted that UK’s 2010 team — coach John Calipari’s first UK team — has challenged the 2012 national championship team in the annual charity game. That means the 2010 stars (John Wall, DeMarcus Cousins, Eric Bledsoe) could entertain fans against Anthony Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Marquis Teague. Not sure which team Darius Miller would play for — maybe a half for each team.
What do you think? Is this a game you would like to see? Who would win?
