Chane Behanan and Shagari Alleyne join Bluegrass Boys

The Bluegrass Boys made two big additions, figuratively and literally, to their team that will compete in The Tournament.

As has typically been the case, one was a former Kentucky Wildcats player in Shagari Alleyne. The other was a bit odd to say the least.

It's former Louisville Cardinals forward and NCAA champion (for now at least) Chane Behanan, who becomes the first non-UK player to join this team. It's been an interesting past two years for Behanan, who went from helping lead UL to the national title in 2013 before being kicked off the team and is now part of the ongoing investigation into UL for recruiting violations centered around Katina Powell and her book, Breaking Cardinal Rules.

So yeah, this is interesting to say the least. Then again, this is a team of 'Bluegrass' boys, so it should technically have guys from other colleges in the Bluegrass state, but to this point, Chane is the only non-UK player on the roster.
