I had the pleasure of attending the press conference today for Jeff Sheppard’s announcement of the Big Blue All Stars vs the Villains.
I have also posted the ticket information below the video.

Rex Chapman, former University of Kentucky standout from 1986 – 88, will be the head coach of the Big Blue All Stars. The Villains will be coached by the single most hated Kentucky “villain” of all time, former Duke national champion, Christian Laettner. Laettner will forever be remembered for hitting the game-winning buzzer beater in a 1992 regional final against Kentucky.
The Big Blue All Stars will feature NBA players from the University of Kentucky matched up against NBA players from rival colleges and universities. The complete roster of team players will be announced soon.
