Of all the moments that I was proud to be a fan of the UK basketball program last year, the work done at the Hoops for Haiti telethon may have been the best. We were fortunate enough to be able to tape our podcast at the event and it was great to see all the players, coaches, media and volunteers team up for the good cause. Well with the season over and the funds raised, John Calipari will head to Haiti on Wednesday to deliver shoes for needy kids raised from the event’s funds. Joining him will be some of the donors for the project and Calipari will spend time there before he heads to New York for Thursday’s NBA Draft.
A big thanks to all the Kentuckians who donated and were part of the event. It was a tremendous day for a wonderful cause.
