UK Coach John Calipari announced on twitter Thursday night that rapper and entertainer Drake will be a coach when the UK Alumni games are played September 15th in Rupp Arena.
Tickets are on sale now for the two games to be played in Rupp. One will feature former Wildcats who are now in the NBA. Another will feature member of UK's 1996 National Championship team. Calipari said Tony Delk, Antoine Walker, Derek Anderson, Jeff Sheppard, Walter McCarty and Wayne Turner will all return. Names of the current NBA players who will be back cannot be announced.
The game featuring the 1996 players will be played first with the current NBA players taking the court at 2pm. All money raised will go to charity and Calipari is hopeful of making the Alumni Game an annual event. Tickets can be purchased at the Rupp Arena box office or through Ticketmaster.
