Coach Cal: Former Cats returning for exhibition game

Some former UK basketball stars will be returning to the Bluegrass next month for an exhibition game at Rupp Arena.

UK Coach John Calipari says those stars will take on his Dominican Republic national team August 15.

Coach Cal says the roster for the Kentucky team will include John Wall, Eric Bledsoe, DeMarcus Cousins, Rajon Rondo, Jodie Meeks, Tayshaun Prince, Nazr Mohammed, and Keith Bogans.

The Dominican Republic roster will include Charlie Villanueva, Al Horford, and former U of L basketball player Francisco Garcia.

Former UK Coach Joe B. Hall was supposed to coach the pro team. However, a source associated with the game says because Hall is the former UK coach, and represents UK's past, he won't be allowed, due to NCAA rules.
