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.
