Continuing a tradition of creating firsts, announced Friday that Kentucky will host an alumni game Sept. 15 at Rupp Arena.  Coach Cal plans to bring back most of the 23 Wildcats currently in the for the game. The proceeds will go to charity, some of which will make it back to West Liberty, Ky., where Calipari was in attendance Friday to survey the damage from a devastating early March tornado and rejoin the relief efforts.  “I’m really excited about it,” Calipari said. “The players are excited about it. When we did the Dominican Republic (exhibition games), you remember we played the Kentucky team. Those players, when they were introduced, it was like a love-fest. They have never had an introduction like that since they left Kentucky until they came back to Kentucky. They’re family.”
