UK Basketball will have an alumni weekend


NCAA Basketball: Kentucky Blue Madness Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

We’ve still got a bit of a wait until the Kentucky Wildcats are back on the court in game-like action when the Blue-White Game takes place in October.

While we’re still over two months away from that, John Calipari made an announcement this week that will bring some added excitement to that specific weekend. UK will be hosting an alumni reunion that weekend, which takes place Oct. 18-20. The game itself takes place on the 18th.

Calipari always loves finding ways to gather former Wildcat players and coaches in Lexington, so this should be a great chance for fans to see and potentially meet UK greats on that weekend.

This is also the same weekend in which UK is hosting the annual John Calipari Fantasy Camp, which also involves former UK greats and helps to raise money for charity.

The football team will be on the road to face Georgia that weekend, so there won’t be an issue of the football and basketball teams overlapping each other on campus.
