Our ace reporter Ryan Lemond is currently in Lexington interviewing John Calipari and the players, and although most of that information is embargoed until October 1st, Cal gave him a news bit to share with the masses. According to Calipari, 17,000 tickets have been sold so far for the Alumni Game on Monday night, and former UK greats Kenny Walker, Andre Riddick, Mark Krebs, Jared Prickett, Perry Stevenson, Ramon Harris, Randolph Morris, and possibly Wayne Turner and Goose Givens will play in the early game against the Fantasy Camp All-Stars. That game will tip off at 5:15 p.m. ET. Two alumni games for the price of one! Still don’t have a ticket yet? There are plenty left on Ticketmaster.
Cal also said that because of contract issues, the alumni game won’t purely be the 2012 team against the 2010 team, so players from other teams will be used as well. Some of the names we’ve heard include Jamaal Magloire and Joe Crawford.
It will still be awesome. See you there.
