The UK vs North Carolina Alumni Charity Game at a sold-out Rupp Arena on September 13, 2015 featured a number of former University of Kentucky Wildcat all-stars, including Sacramento Kings teammates Willie Cauley-Stein and DeMarcus Cousins, Eric Bledsoe, Terrence Jones, Karl Towns, twins Aaron and Andrew Harrison, Trey Lyles, and Devin Booker. UK basketball legend Anthony Davis was also at the game, serving as a coach. The University of Kentucky alumni went on to secure the 122-115 win and although it was just a charity game, it’s always a big deal when the Cats beat the Tar Heels.
Harrison Barnes, James Michael McAdoo, and Jerry Stackhouse were among the alums who represented North Carolina.
UK basketball season kicks off on November 2 for an exhibition game against Ottawa. Big Blue Madness 2015 at Rupp Arena is scheduled for October 16.
