UK Pros beat UNC Pros, 122-115

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.”

Harrison Barnes was the game’s leading scorer with 39 for the visitors. His night ended with a missed windmill attempt that he pinned against the rim before falling to the floor.

All in all, it was a fun-filled evening in Rupp Arena to cap off an exciting weekend and it was all for good cause. Here is a list of beneficiaries from the event:

    It was so much fun to watch DeMarcus’s son at halftime.

      He’s got the moves and kept us all entertained during the half. He’s adorable.

    Thank you Coach Cal for the donation to 4-Paws. My 6-yr old autistic son has a dog from 4-Paws and the dog has changed our son’s (& our’s) life. Unbelievable how wonderful these dogs are! Great organization that is helping all kinds of people with disabilities.

    That little boy can play some ball. I’ve seen him play several time. I’m sure he will be back in 14 years.

    Anyone else sick and tired of ESPN and their Homerism directed at Duke / the ACC.
    I mean get real did you hear them defending themselves still having Duke As the #1 class.
    Get real it’s been Weeks since Jamal Murray made his decision / and still yet doesn’t have a ranking or aka # beside his name. I mean get real he’s projected as a lottery pick next year, yet ESPN not acknowledging it.

    it definitely was a blast watching UK toy with UNC =letting them hang around. seemingly anytime they wanted to= they busted it out to a 20 point lead. Go Cats

    From the beginning, it seemed predestined that Kentucky would win the ersatz game. UK had more players (10-8) and more NBA Draft picks (9-3). The North Carolina Pros had two 40-year-olds: Jerry Stackhouse and Shammond Williams.

    Should have won by 50………..can’t believe your bragging

      1. I think there ore only two or three Cards in the NBA.

      2. Those playing in Europe / Asia can’t afford the airfare.

    In my opinion, the game was meant to be a fund raising, fun filled gesture of sportsmanship with intent to please the crowd but not embarrass our powder blue arch enemies from Chapel Hill. My hat’s off to the Tarheels who came to play our beloved Wildcats and make this the fan special that it was. I watched the game and really enjoyed seeing these wonderful men in UK blue back home. Thank You to all those who made this special treat possible.

    Thanks to Drew for posting the beneficiaries. It was a event intended to draw attention to certain charities, but the announcers didn’t mention why it was being held. When both teams gathered at half court with the oversized check, the announcers talked about the rosters. And during the entire broadcast, I believe Cal was the only one to mention that many of the donations were being made in Dean Smith’s name. So thanks again, Drew. This was something the broadcast should have done.
