UK Pros October Barnstorming Tour

We got so excited about the potential UK Pros vs. UK Villains game that we forgot to tell you about the other exhibitions. The UK Pros will also play five exhibition games against some of the small colleges across the state. Pikeville (Oct. 8), Alice Lloyd (Oct. 9), Georgetown (Oct. 10), Union College (Oct. 12), and Mid-Continent (Oct. 13) will all host games against a variation of the UK Pros team we saw in August.

Brandon Knight, Rajon Rondo, Eric Bledsoe, Jodie Meeks, DeAndre Liggins, and Josh Harrellson have all committed to play in those games. Wall, Bogans, and Chuck Hayes are possible additions to the roster.

The NBA lockout is the best thing to happen to fans of Kentucky basketball. I don’t care if the NBA ever plays another game if these guys keep hanging around the bluegrass.

    Put Wall, Knight, and Rondo with Chuck and Josh. The sweetest Pick and Rolls you will ever see!

    Forget football. Lets figure out how we can have college basketball, nba basketball, and UK nba touring team seasons. Did I mention, forget football.

    Later, Joker.

    3. And now that he’s come back to work out and hang out, he’ll hopefully realize how much UK fans embrace him to this day, and stay around for a while. Would love to see him at a game this season. 🙂

    I just found this site just to see what you UK fans were doing in the middle of Football season. This is the first one I see. How pathetic are you guys, seriously; its football season!
    We’ll add one more to your pathetic streak this year. Everybody else is the SEC is thinking Football, just so you know, and basketball is just an afterthought, hell most other SEC schools prefer baseball over basketball.
    Seriously, you guys really should look into the football thing, there’s way more money in it. Have fun this year dribbling your balls.

    9, with the team you have returning for basketball this year, it would be an afterthought at any school.

    You want to glorify these guys? They absolutely embarrassed us against the Dominicans. The freaking Dominicans! And if I were these guys I’d not be risking injury playing in these exhibitions. But then again what do I care about them. They embarrassed us against the friggin’ Dominicans. Am I serious? No… http://dudelol.com/oldimgs/just-kidding.jpg

    Why can’t this year’s Cats scrimmage against them at Big Blue Madness? That would be very cool, which would violate the NCAA rule against having fun, I guess.
