Partial Roster for 2017 UK Alumni Charity Game Set

Posted: Updated:

LEXINGTON, Ky. – Some of the greatest players to put on a Kentucky uniform will be back in action for the UK Alumni Charity Game on Friday in Rupp Arena.

Former Wildcat stars Derek Anderson, Keith Bogans, Ramel Bradley, Rex Chapman, Erik Daniels, Tony Delk, Jamaal Magloire, Mychal Mulder and Antoine Walker are all confirmed for the main event of the UK Alumni Charity Series. Current NBA players will also play in the 8 p.m. UK Alumni Charity game, but per NBA rules, the University of Kentucky cannot confirm any current NBA players participating in the exhibition games.

Dwane Casey, current head coach of the Toronto Raptors, and Walter McCarty, a current assistant head coach with the Boston Celtics, will serve as head coaches during the UK Alumni Charity Game.

And that’s just one of the two games that will featured on an evening that will has annually helped raise – along with John Calipari’s Basketball Fantasy Experience – more than $1 million for charity.

Rosters for the 2017 UK Legends Game, which will be held Friday at 7 p.m. in conjunction with the UK Alumni Charity Game, were announced Monday. Twenty players are expected to suit up for the Legends Game. Chip Rupp, grandson of legendary UK coach Adolph Rupp, will coach the Blue Team and former UK coach Joe B.
