Five Wildcats to play in the Jordan Brand Classic

The rosters were announced today for the Jordan Brand Classic and five of Kentucky’s six 2013 commitments will participate in the game.  Andrew Harrison, Dakari Johnson, James Young and Marcus Lee will suit up for the West Team against Aaron Harrison, the lone Wildcat on the East roster.  The East Team will also feature Andrew Wiggins and Julius Randle.

The game will be played on April 13 in Brooklyn at Barclays Center.  That’s the same day as Kentucky football’s Spring Game.

Cats.

    They had to give Randle and Wiggins one of the twins. Hopefully Gordon will enjoy his time playing with the UK recruits.

    Funny, I see no Louisville commits on the list. shocking…with all the success Siva (who was/is better than Wall) has really blossomed.

    Good to see KSR’s own Matt Jones suiting up for the West Team. Looks like Camp Cal paid off after all

    How are they going to split up the twins?

    They split the Harrison twins up? I guess that would be an unfair advantage

    Is Embiid even a top 100 player?

    Weird…SEC BB sucks(so they say), but 11 of the 22 players on these roster could be balling in the SEC next…Go figure

    The amount of talent in these games this year is unbelievable. Can’t wait to watch all of the all star games.

    Wonder if Cal will be at the game? Also, wonder if Wiggins, Randle, and Gordon make their announcement at the game or at the McDonalds game.

    Why do you always post such horrific pics of Jordan? I’m just saying. Get over yourself, Mr. Franklin. Go Cats!

    Who is Jordan Brand, and why does he have his own classic?

    By the time it’s all said and done I think we have 6 players at that game! The 6th could very well announce at that game( I’m hoping Gordon).



  20. Bring on young

    Can’t wait to see Young! Out of all the recruits he seems to be the one who WANTED to be here from the start and made it known. He very well could be the fan favorite on par with MKG!

    1, they shouldn’t have split up the twins. 2, they should’ve put Randle with Andrew Harrison bc wasn’t that the one Randle said he wanted to play with. 3, should’ve put all the Cats on the same team, possibly even our last 3 recruits as well for them to get a feel for how they’d all play with each other next year
