The former Tar Heels tried to hang around with the former Wildcats in today’s alumni game but the home team was just too loaded with talent to go down.
DeMarcus Cousins led the way for UK with 33 points, 18 rebounds, six assists and three blocks, all team-highs. He hit several three-pointers in the game, leading Calipari to say afterward, “He tried to show me I should have let him go.”
