On Monday, the University of Kentucky confirmed several key elements of the charity event for Friday. The rosters and coaches for the Legends Game were announced as well as the coaches for the Alumni Game.
While NCAA regulations do not allow UK to publicize the NBA guys coming to the Alumni Game, it sounds like things are shaping up for coaches Dwane Casey and Walter McCarty to be leading rosters they could only dream of having the league.
The players rumored to be returning to Rupp Arena on Friday are Anthony Davis, John Wall, DeMarcus Cousins, Trey Lyles, Eric Bledsoe, Rajon Rondo, Darius Miller, and several others.
Some of these guys have confirmed the rumors:
